A Way Forward: Nurturing the Imagination at the Intersection Race, Class, Gender, and Age
Annie Lockhart-Gilroy (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Those who are oppressed often find themselves internalizing voices that limit their ability. This paper focuses on a population that falls on the non-hegemonic side of intersections of race, class, gender, and age: Black girls from poor and working class backgrounds. Internalizing these limiting voices can lead to a sense of personal hopelessness. This paper gives a brief overview of the problem of personal hopelessness. To combat this, it then presents a Christian education paradigm based on nurturing the theological imagination.

What's So Offensive About a #womanwholikesherself?
Jennifer Moe (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Comedian Amy Schumer, in response to a twitter challenge to “offend everyone in four words,” produced the hashtag #womanwholikesherself. I will propose several questions for discussion around the topic of self-love, self-like, and religious identity for women: What comes to mind when someone says a woman “likes herself”? Is there a difference between loving yourself (as in “love your neighbor as yourself”) and liking yourself? What is so offensive about the idea that a woman likes herself? And finally, can we imagine a religious education that encourages girls and women to like themselves?
