AWSC was very sad to cancel this long planned Hui.
For many years there has been a gathering of women from Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, to hear inspiring speakers, to gain skills of leadership, to share research, theology and Biblical studies.
Because of the changing face of Covid-19, AWSC is now offering POP UP HUI in local area.
The first POP UP HUI is in Hamilton, with the dynamic Emily Colgan as key note speaker
Friday 29 April 10.30-1.30 Chartwell Cooperating Parish124 Comries Rd, Chartwell, Hamilton
Women, Bible, Earth – dangerous interconnections?
You are invited to hear Dr Emily Colgan in person.
Emily Colgan, Biblical scholar, reveals the dangers of dualistic thinking about women and earth in sacred text. Feminine and land-based metaphors in sacred texts can influence real world assumptions, attitudes and behaviours towards women and the earth – without the readers’ knowledge. At the heart of the problem, said Dr Colgan, is a mindset formed in ancient times and perpetuated in ‘the West,’ that categorises everything into an ordered list of value-laden opposites, known as a ‘dualist hierarchy’. In that system of thinking, she said, women and land are linked together on the ‘inferior side’ of the chart.
All welcome, entry by koha RSVP for a delicious lunch(provided)
