New Voices in Theology

SMT6602HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In recent decades hosts of new voices have joined and vastly expanded theological dialogue: African Americans, women, and “Third World”–Latin American, South African, Filipino, Indian, Sri Lankan, Korean, etc. More recently indigenous, Hispanic American, womanist, gay and lesbian, mujerista/Latina, Asian-Canadian and Asian-American, and ecological voices are expanding the dialogues. And newer voices continue to emerge.  We will: trace the early history of dialogues among these new voices; sample more recent voices; identify points of convergence and divergence; examine epistemological, hermeneutical and methodological issues concerning experience, standpoints, perspectives; engage new–and very old–ways of reading the bible; explore new Christologies; probe the riches of this new theological diversity, the dangers of relativism and new grounds for authenticity and authority; explore new theological frontiers in re-centering theology in the Spirit and re-mapping earth and heaven, history and salvation.
