It has been nearly 25 years since 2000+ theologians, clergy, and laity assembled at the first Re-Imagining: A Global Theological Conference By Women: For Men and Women, to address injustices to women and promote equal partnership with men at all levels of religious life. Join us for a conversation with historian Dr. Sara M. Evans and feminist theologian Dr. Sherry Jordon as they introduce the new Re-Imagining Community web portal and facilitate a conversation on the future of the Re-Imagining Movement.
In addition to this discussion, Dr. Evans will provide a history of the Re-Imagining movement in a program at the Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room (Rubenstein Library Room 153) on Tuesday, April 18, at 4:00 pm. Reception to begin at 3:30 pm in the Holsti Room.
Co-Sponsored with the Sallie Bingham Center by the Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke; the Duke Divinity School; the Program in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Duke University; the Duke University Chapel; the Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South.
