Sexuality in Christianity has often been a source of shame, exclusion, violence, and oppression. Theologians and ethicists have also offered liberative, celebratory, and nourishing theologies of sexuality.
This course explores a wide range of theological dimensions of and approaches to human sexuality, including gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, sexual activity, sexual health and well-being, reproductive justice, family systems and arrangements, and systems, including ecclesial systems, that assign meaning, power, and hierarchies to different aspects of sexuality.
Students will engage multiple perspectives and stories and develop their own theology of sexuality.
