Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


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.
