@theTable: “Intersectionality & Political Action” and Open Call for Submissions
What is the global and local impact of the U.S. political situation in 2017? The Feminist Liberation Theologians’ Network (FLTN) began a conversation on this topic at AAR/SBL 2016 by considering the impact of intersectional approaches and experiences on political response and engagement. This FSR Blog @theTable and partnered open call invite you to continue that conversation. This week, authors Nami Kim, Judith Plaskow and Andrea Smith will share what they presented at the FLTN 2016 gathering and we will extend the conversation here on the FSR blog. We invite you to submit blogs highlighting insights from feminist and religious studies approaches on topics dealing with privilege and risk, the politics of empathy, the need for self-care, and the importance of local as well as national focus for action.
Deadline: March 24th, 2017.
More Information: CFB: “Intersectionality & Political Action.”
N.B. Open call authors must incorporate aspects of the @theTable’s analyses in their blog submissions. Submissions that do not engage any of the published pieces will be declined.
