This is a survey course, anchored in a contextual approach to theology, that explores the relationship between social justice and classical and contemporary theological reflections in Christian traditions. Topics addressed will include justice-related issues and contextual theologies engaging the issues in a Canadian and broadly North American context. Attention is given to colonialism/settler colonialism, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, war and peace, economic inequality, ecological crisis, and restorative justice. Intersectional theory is also included to address the complexity of simultaneously operating injustice rooted in the social context. This course will be basically arranged with lectures, presentations,discussions, readings and writings. The means of evaluation are 5-minute exploratory writing, class participation, reflection paper, presentation, and research paper.
