Jewish feminist thought: Unfinished agendas, new directions

Rutgers University

[Cancelled because of weather]

Faculty seminar

Starting in the 1970s, Jewish feminists challenged the gender order of Jewish tradition and unleashed an outpouring of innovative work in midrash, ritual, liturgy, and other expressive forms.  This seminar examines how the themes that emerged in early feminist critiques of Jewish thought have been amplified, addressed, or shifted by recent developments in Jewish feminism, including Kohenet, Orthodox feminism, and queer and trans theology.
