We are living in an era when traumatic experiences are being more frequently acknowledged in public and there are multiple calls for recognition and justice for those who experience such trauma. Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, the Sisters Uncut protests, campaigns against Female Genital Mutilation, and multiple sexual abuse scandals are all movements situated at the intersection of feminism and trauma.
Feminist Trauma Theologies explores the relationship between trauma and feminist theologies, highlighting methodological, theological, and practical similarities between the two.
With contributions from a diverse team of scholars, this book is an essential resource for all thinkers and practitioners who are trying to navigate the current conversations around theology, suffering, and feminism.
With a foreword by Shelly Rambo, author of Resurrecting Wounds (Baylor University Press, 2017)
Karen O'Donnell shares her thoughts and motivations for exploring the relationship between feminist and trauma theologies.
“A remarkable book. It takes feminist theologies’ engagement with trauma to a whole new level. This groundbreaking collection promises to open minds, change lives, spark insight, reveal the ever-deepening fractures of trauma, and offer a glimpse of healing. Its feminist theologies at their best – pastoral, socially critically, activist, scholarly, bold, existentially engaged, and painfully, powerfully real.” -- Serene Jones, President, Union Theological Seminary
"This wise and courageous set of essays represents a significant contribution to the field of feminist trauma theology. The powerful testimonies collected in this volume name the prevalence of traumatic suffering in church and society, as well as witnessing to the power of theology both to wound and to heal." -- Elaine Graham, Grosvenor Research Professor of Practical Theology, University of Chester
