Sacred Earth and African Women’s Theology
AbstractThis special issue is one of the nine academic publications emerging from the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians’ (the Circle) Fifth Pan-African Conference, held at the University of Botswana (Gaborone), July 2-5, 2019. The conference was also a commemoration of the Circle’s thirty years of existence. It featured papers on some aspects of the theme, “Mother Earth and Mother Africa in Theological/Religious/Cultural/Philosophical Imagination.” As was noted in the Conference Call for Papers:The land is often constructed as female gendered and the oppression of women is interlinked with the oppression of the Earth; and…it is widely acknowledged that we live in the era of global warming - which is humanly induced and of which many have also linked with anthropocentric religious/cultural/theological perspectives.
