Lecture: Feminist and Womanist Religious Thought

Part of the series "Women and Religion, Philosophy and Feminism: The Colgate Heritage In Honor of Professors Marilyn Thie and Wanda Warren Berry."

This event will also be livestreamed online.

Professors Wanda Warren Berry (1962-1971, 1977-2003) and Marilyn Thie (1974-2011), Emeritae, had a transforming effect on the Colgate curriculum, introducing and teaching courses including "Women and Religion," "Feminist and Womanist Religious Thought," and "Philosophy and Feminism" over three decades, thus raising the consciousness of a generation of students.  With the support of The Arthur W. ’40 and Anne Hale Johnson Religion and Ethics in America Lecture Series and the M. Holmes Hartshorne Memorial Lecture Fund in Philosophy and Religion, and in coordination with the Department of Philosophy and the Women's Studies Program, the Department of Religion is sponsoring a symposium on April 11-13, 2018, Women and Religion, Philosophy and Feminism, featuring Colgate graduates who have carried forward the heritage of Professors Thie and Berry.  Emeritae Professors Berry and Thie will serve as hosts, presenters, and respondents at the symposium.  In addition to the public events, all of the participants will visit classes taught by Department of Religion faculty, who will organize portions of their courses in accordance with the themes of the Johnson and Hartshorne symposium.

Lunch catered by Chartwells will be available at 11:15 a.m.
