Intro to Womanist Interpretation

Wednesdays on Zoom | 6:30-8pm | Sept. 21, 28, Oct. 5, 12, 26, Nov. 2, 9, 16

Presenter: Rev. Yolanda Norton*

Womanist interpretation is a growing field in Biblical Studies and Christian Theology. It is rooted in the lived experience of African American women from whose perspective people of faith can hear and understand, in new and fresh ways, God’s movement and voice in our world. Over this 8-session mini course you will explore Scripture from a Womanist lens, and how such readings move us to public, prophetic witness in our various callings as people of faith. (Learn more about Womanist Theology in this video.)

  • Rev. Yolanda M. Norton is the Founder/Executive Director at Global Arts and Theology Experience
  • She is a sixth-year doctoral candidate in Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel at Vanderbilt University where her current research interests include womanist interpretation, narrative and literary criticism. In particular, her work right now is focused on the books of Genesis and Ruth, and how each text treats foreign women. She is concerned with the ways in which insider-outsider paradigms in Scripture influence constructions of identity such that they vilify and/or oppress women of color who encounter the biblical canon in the modern world.
