Room: Shattuck Hall
This course will explore the theological and critical writings of theologians and theorists of the Global South in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Resisting an Area Studies approach to theological studies in the First/Third World paradigm of the Cold War, this course adopts Alina Sajed’s definition of Global South as including necropolitical zones in the North” characterized by exploitation, oppression and neocolonial relations” while unpacking the neocolonial activity of historic Third World nation-states in East Asia and the Arabian Peninsula. Readings will include texts incorporating liberationist, anti/post/decolonial, anticapitalist, feminist, queer, indigenous, and Marxist lenses. Theoretical texts will counterbalance theological writings to assess their liberative potentialities whilst also acknowledging their limitations.
