RES 385 - Liberation Movements: Empowerment, Solidarity, and Praxis


Why are people in today’s world still struggling for liberation from economic oppression, political repression, religious intolerance, and modern slavery? Why do so many people live with food scarcity, unclean water, and inadequate educational resources? How do these people work for their own liberation? What does it mean to stand with oppressed persons as Allies and Upstanders? We will explore theological and ethical approaches which analyze the dynamic of oppression-empowerment-praxis as individuals and communities work for social change. Particular attention given to Feminist, Womanist, Black, Native American, Disability, LGBTQ, and Latin American liberation activists. Codes: BR. Prereq: PEQ in Religious Studies.
