Short Takes: Politics in the Classroom and Beyond: This section launches a unique forum for a group of authors to offer thoughtful reflections on what it means to engage in specific pedagogical practices that integrate contemporary sociopolitical issues into a religious studies, women’s studies, or seminary curriculum. Authors address a single conceptual theme related to teaching about women, gender, and religion. Rather than a “how to” description of pedagogical strategies, “Short Takes” provides a space to focus on the underlying goals and overarching theories that matter most in the pedagogical approaches of the authors. A short paragraph introduces the particular theme and each author (4-6) contributes an 800-1000 word reflection on a given topic.
