About the Conference:

New York Theological Seminary was historically a space in which many of the early Womanist theologians shared their research and reflections on how the experiences of African American women relate to the construction and practice of theologies and ministries in the Christian tradition as well as other religious expressions. Recently, several biblical scholars have analyzed the history and practice of Womanist theology with relation to methods and sources for biblical hermeneutics. This conference presents some of their work as well as how Womanist hermeneutics has impacted ministry practices in religious education, youth ministry and social justice.
