The Power of Love in Hard Times Like These: Conversations on Gender and Racial Justice

The Power of Love in Hard Times Like These: Conversations on Gender and Racial Justice

The Gender Equity in Word and Deed Committee at Grace Church and The Mercer School of Theology invite you to the first Feminist Scholar in Residence workshop.

Guest Speaker: Reverend Dr. Emilie Townes, Dean of the Vanderbilt Divinity School.

Townes’ broad areas of expertise include Christian ethics, cultural theory and studies, postmodernism and social postmodernism. She has been a pioneering scholar in womanist theology, a field of studies in which the historic and current insights of African American women are brought into critical engagement with the traditions of Christian theology. Townes has a strong interest in thinking critically about womanist perspectives on issues such as health care, economic justice, poetry and literary theory.
