Off the Press: May 2019
“Off the Press” is an FSR series that highlights the exciting news and accomplishments of our FSR Board membership that they wish to be shared with the wider community.
- Rosemary Carbine (FFSR) will give a public lecture at Boston College on July 19th (12-3pm), entitled: “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Women’s Religio-Political Witness for Love and Justice.” N.B. Registration opened May 1st, 2019.
- Rosemary Carbine (FFSR) and Kate Ott (JFSR/Books) both published chapters in Theologies of Failure (Wipf and Stock, 2019). Rosemary’s chapter is titled, “Rival Powers: Catholics Confront the Climate Crisis,” and Kate’s is “Orgasmic Failure: A Praxis Ethic for Adolescent Sexuality.”
- Celene Ibrahim (FFSR) published One Nation, Indivisible: Seeking Liberty and Justice from the Pulpit to the Streets (Wipf and Stock, 2019).
- Peter A. Mena (EFSR) published Place and Identity in the Lives of Antony, Paul, and Mary of Egypt: Desert as Borderland (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019).
- And on April 9, Sylvia Marcos (International JFSR) led a “Live Roundtable,” adapted from the bilingual Roundtable in the issue 34.2 of JFSR. Present listening and actively participating at this forum were representatives and professors of local universities, activists, and scholars of diverse intellectual perspectives on feminisms from national institutions like the Mexican Institute of Women. The event was an invitation to share and debate the articles contributed by Mexican ecofeminist theologians and indigenous feminist context theologians from Coordinadora Diocesana de Mujeres Indigenes (CODIMUJ).
