I Congreso Continental de Teología Feminista: March 1-3, 2017

The Cátedra de Teología Feminista Carmen Montull Vallés is sponsoring the 1st Feminist Theology Continental Congress on March 1-3, 2017, at the Universidad Iboamericana in Mexico City. Registration for the conference is 300 pesos. The conference will be in Spanish.

The theme of this first conference is violence against women. As the conference website states: "Violence towards women's bodies has become more acute in recent times. This fact has repercussions in the dehumanization of people and social injustice in Latin America. Hence the Cátedra de Teología Feminista has proposed making a critical analysis of the genealogy of violence and promoting feminist theology as a political tool based on the values of the gospel." And it states that the objective is "identifying the genealogy of power and mechanisms of violence in the political-religious space to liberate women's bodies."
