Dates:  7th and 21st October 2017 and 4 November 2017

Venue:  King Alfred’s Campus, MB5

Three Saturday morning (10am - 1pm) participatory workshops. 

  • Session 1 – Prophecy and Justice in Judaism and Islam: A Comparison with Liberation Theology from a Feminist Perspective. This session includes an introduction to the aims of this course and an examination of the concepts and terms we will be using.
  • Session 2 – Prophetic Texts and Ways of Interpretation. In this session, we will read selected texts and apply the Jewish method of midrash and the Muslim method of ta’wil to uncover deeper meanings relevant to women’s voices for liberation today.
  • Session 3 – The Presence of God With Us. After examining some examples of women who work for the liberation of the oppressed and the marginalized we will consider how we can align ourselves with the prophetic voice and create a plan of action that can be implemented in our own lives.

Participants are expected to attend all three sessions.  The fee covers all three sessions on 7th October, 21st October and 4th November.

Everyone is welcome. It is not necessary to be a person of faith to partake in the course. A certificate of attendance is available for those who complete the course.
