The Oppressed Emotion and Imagination (Reading the Bible with Body-Centered Movement)
Hye Hyun Han (Boston University School of Theology)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] People of the postmodern world are more familiar with emotional approaches to experiencing God rather than objectively reading the Bible. In this respect, I plan to try a different approach from traditional ways of reading the Bible, namely through body-centered movement based on imagination. In this research, I will focus on the case of oppressed emotions in Korean women. I will discuss the effectiveness of imagination with a body-centered approach to the Bible through a spiritual and psychological method to analyze the process of reaching toward God-consciousness through imagination.

Aesthetic Empathy and Imagination: The Pedagogy of Friedl Dicker-Brandeis with Applications for Religious Educators
Barbara Javore (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Research Interest Group.
 [Paper] Building upon the concept of aesthetic empathy, Friedl Dicker-Brandeis devised an art pedagogy that would become the basis for the practice of art therapy. The art courses she conducted for children in the Terezín ghetto during the Holocaust, were meant to free the child’s imagination, nurture creative agency and restore a sense of reality in the midst of chaos and deprivation. Using her pedagogical methods, a workshop will be designed to develop aesthetic experiences that will stimulate the imagination and nurture creative responses for at risk youth in a religious context.
