Gender is a term which is used to denote "a range of identities that do not correspond to established ideas of male and female" (Oxford Dict., OUP), but which stand for a social construct, by opposition to a reduction to a psycho-physiological determinism. Globethics.net Gender and Theology collection gathers over 40,000 items in the intersection of gender and theology with a strong focus on Latin America.

  • 大學生感恩量表之發展

    教育系; 林志哲;葉玉珠; Yeh, Yu-chu (2011-04)
    [[abstract]]本研究的主要目的在發展「大學生感恩量表」(Inventory of Undergraduates' Gratitude, IUG)。本研究分兩階段各抽取大學一至四年級學生。首先以立意抽樣選取214人為預試參與者,進行項目分析、探索性因素分析及信度分析,結果共抽取出五個因素:感謝他人、感念恩典、知足惜福、感謝逆境、珍視當下;總量表的Cronbach's α係數為.930(共26題)。接著,以非隨機分層抽樣選取另750人為正式施測參與者,進行驗證性因素分析及效標關聯效度分析,結果發現「大學生的感恩量表」(IUG)模式有合理的適配及良好的效標關聯效度,而且「大學生的感恩量表」(IUG)五個一階因素具有合理的組合信度與變異數平均解釋量。因此,「大學生的感恩量表」(IUG)具有良好的信度與效度。此外,本研究發現女大學生在感恩的整體表現及五個分量表(感謝他人、感念恩典、知足惜福、感謝逆境、珍視當下)的表現均優於男大學生;有宗教信仰(信仰道、基督/天主教)大學生在「感念恩典」、「感謝逆境」分量表的表現優於無宗教信仰大學生,而信仰佛教大學生在感恩的整體表現及「感念恩典」的表現上也優於無宗教信仰大學生;但不同年級的參與者在感恩的表現上則無差異。

  • The work of Daphne Hampson : the God talk of one feminist theologian

    Jacobs, Maretha M. (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 2009-11-09)
    For almost all of human history both in ancient times and in modern contexts, talk about God has been mainly a male preserve. So closely has male God talk been associated by many with God’s own voice, that it is still not commonly realized and acknowledged. With the rise of feminism, especially during recent decades, it has changed. In this article the work of Daphne Hampson, a British feminist theologian, is considered. Her definition and critique of Christianity, her view of the relation between the present and our Christian past, specifically with regard to God talk, her dealing with prominent aspects of the Christian belief system and her emphasis on taking seriously all available knowledge and our contemporary context in doing theology. In line with some current trends in God talk, such as a movement away from anthropomorphism, and in dialogue with Friedrich Schleiermacher, she formulates what she calls a “future theism”.
  • Filosofiese besinning oor die vroulike en vroulikheid van die godheid

    Du Toit, Louise (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 2010-05-13)
    ATKV/SA AKADEMIEPRYS BESTE ARTIKEL 2008: This article considers the importance of the feminine of the divine (or ‘the goddess’) from the perspective of a philosophy of sexual
 difference, as the latter is proposed mainly by French feminist philosopher, Luce Irigaray. The article considers why we have lost the feminine of the divine, why she is making a comeback, and the strongest reasons – philosophically speaking – for retrieving some of those elements for the sake of the world and humanity today.

  • Get thee to a Nunnery. Teaching the Sociology of Religion through film

    Rippin, Frances; Wharton, David (2009)
    Following Peter Whittaker’s inspiring workshops at the 2008 conference and his article in the Summer edition (“Going to the Movies: Visual Sociology" SST 38/3), Social Science Teacher is offering an occasional series of pieces exploring the ways in which films, TV programmes, music and other products of popular culture can be used to develop students’ sociological understanding. Here, we consider Peter Mullan’s 2002 British film The Magdalene Sisters as a valuable enhancement to the teaching of the sociology of religion. We also provide some photocopiable resources related to the film.

  • The Pashkovite women in Russia

    Kuznetsova, Miriam R.; Hofmeyr, J.W. (Johannes Wynand), 1947- (Church History Society of Southern Africa, 2011-03-30)
    Neither the secular nor ecclesiastical Russia of the second half of the nineteenth century left much room for women’s activity outside the home. The situation slowly began to change by the
 turn of the century when women started to gain access to higher education, jobs, and so forth. From the outset the Radstockist-Pashkovite movement was strongly characterised by the active participation of women. In fact the movement
 started with women inviting Lord Radstock to St. Petersburg and opening their homes to his sermons/preaching. This article reveals the Pashkovite women to be the main missionaries as
 the movement spread across the capital. They participated actively in various philanthropic projects. Finally they spared the Pashkovite movement in St. Petersburg some difficult times
 after the exile of its original leaders in 1884.

    This paper explores how the Sandinista regime used the mountain as a space to develop a new male code of masculinity--one that emphasizes the capacity to survive and change in a relation to the mountain, and that underscores the importance of respect, sincerity, and brotherhood.
