This course is a general introduction to womanist hermeneutics and thought. Womanist scholars distinguish themselves from white feminist scholars and black male theologians by interpreting texts and contexts through the lens of black female experiences and sources. Major attention will be given to the hermeneutical methodology and interdisciplinary sources womanist use to interrogate Bible and context in addressing contemporary issues like racism, sexism, classism, and sexuality.
