If you are widely plugged into the theoblogosphere and associated online theological discussion forums, you may have noticed a bit of a hubbub going on the past few days. But I thought that many DET readers may not necessarily keep track of the places where this discussion has been raging, so I thought that I would post and draw some attention to it. I feel especially justified in this given that one of DET's contributors, Brandy Daniels, has taken a lead in much of this discussion by writing three substantial posts elsewhere. So, here are some links:
- This whole thing started with a post by Anthony D. Baker over at the Theology Studio website: "Gender and the Studio"
- Brandy then responded with her three posts over at An und für sich: "Gender and Theology (and the Theological Academy): A Response to Tony Baker’s ‘Gender and the Studio’- Part One"
- "Part Two: Bodies Matter (A Response to Tony Baker’s “Gender and the Studio”)"
- "Forsaking Futurity and a Call for Feminist Theologies: A Response to Gender & the Studio, Part Three"
So, there you go. Catch up on your theo-blog current events.
P.S. I forgot another good reason for me to post about all this: unfortunately, much of the discussion on this issue has been conducted on various Facebook group threads, etc., thus limiting accessibility for the uninitiated.
