Abstract/Description

Religious Studies Program Scholars Week Panel (Spring 2018)

Title: Religious Studies Program, “Women & Religion”:

As part of its Spring 2018 event series, the Religious Studies Program (RGS) hosts an interdisciplinary panel of undergraduate student research at “Scholars Week (Spring 2018). Drawing upon their different fields of study, each student explores how different religious traditions are experienced by women, at different periods of history and regions of the world. Together they will illuminate the complex ways that women harness religions to pursue their self-empowerment.

College: Arts & Humanities

Sub-discipline: Religion

Presentors:

  • Amanda Sadler, (BS History/Social Studies Secondary Certification) “Islam: A Feminist Religion”. This paper is an examination of Qur'an and Hadith compared to cultural practices-using Al Andalusia and Abbasid cultures. It aims to demonstrate that the core/basis of Islam is feminist and generous to women while cultural practices diminish the rights and abilities of women.

  • Victoria Hosman (BA English Literature, Minor RGS), “Defying Expectations: The Female Saint of Medieval Europe”, Hagiographies from Medieval Europe place a special significance on female saints. The female saints within these hagiographies have certain roles, characteristics, and actions that do not entirely fit with the feminine expectations of the time period.

  • Victoria Martin (BA Theatre, Minor Gender and Diversity Studies), “Mother’s of the Church” This paper will focus on the characteristics, roles, and actions of the cultural tradition in African American Christianity of the impact that the mother of the church has and how their role and expectations are different from other religions.

Organizer:

Dr. Christine B. Lindner (History; Religious Studies Program coordinator)
