Description

Exploring Aspects of the Feminine Divine 2018 Lecture Series

Following on from the 2017 series, which explored thealogy in a post-human world; the feminine divine within the context of the feminist movement and defining a New (non patriarchal) Story for humanity, the Institute for Theological Partnerships is delighted to offer three diverse lectures on the Feminine Divine for 2018.

This year, the lectures will explore the themes of thealogy and ecology; race, gender and feminist politics and the secret language of the Goddess in dance.

The lectures are free to attend, simply book your place online or by email/ phone from Joanna.Wilson@Winchester.ac.uk or 01962 826 421

We are delighted to welcome young scholar Kavita Maya to give the second lecture in the series:

Arachne’s Voice: Race, Gender and the Goddess

In the midst of new waves of antiracist activism and struggles to decolonise, it is an opportune moment to re-examine questions about race, gender and feminist politics in the western Goddess movement. Bringing thealogy, the concept of the Goddess and the divine feminine into conversation with critical race and postcolonial perspectives, this lecture will argue that colonial stories about race and gender continue to weave through the fabric of the contemporary Goddess movement.

Kavita Maya is an Early Career Researcher in the process of finalising her PhD at SOAS, University of London.
