2022 Regent Summer Programs


The Past, Present, and Future of Feminism

Aug 1–Aug 5 8:30AM–4:30PM HIST 548 2–3 Credits (2 Audit)

Christianity is often painted as the enemy of women's liberation but is this an accurate reading of the past and the present? With that question in mind, unpack the development of the women’s movement from the late-18th century to the present day. Consider the role of Christian faith in the formation of feminist ideology and explore the assumptions that frame culture’s understanding of womanhood, femininity, church, and society. Study a remarkable group of first-wave feminists and learn from their spiritual practice. In doing so, develop fresh insight for thoughtful and relevant mission today.
