Course: MARY AFST 542: African Feminist/Womanist Theology; A Source for African Christian Theology

Course Overview:
Feminist theology as a source for African Christian Theology. Besides the classroom lectures, there will be thirty-six hours of directed field research.

Course Description:
The class commences with a brief historical survey of womanist theology as a liberating theology including its origin, development and spread around the world. Then the class will analyze the challenge womanist theology poses for African culture and African religious tradition and how womanist theology could be a tool for recapturing the African values e.g. that of wholistic approach to human life in relation to the divine and the cosmos.
