Visiting Theologian Wraps Up the Community Read Series
The High School welcomed feminist theologian Dr. Natalia Imperatori-Lee to conclude the Community Read Series: We Should All Be Feminists, which started last November.
Last week the High School welcomed feminist theologian Dr. Natalia Imperatori-Lee to conclude the Community Read Series: We Should All Be Feminists, which started last November. Dr. Imperatori-Lee earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology from the University of Notre Dame and is the associate professor of religious studies at Manhattan College. She is also the author of the forthcoming book, Cuéntame: Narrative in the Ecclesial Present.
Her main area of interest and expertise is teaching about the Catholic Church and feminist issues within it. In preparation for her lecture on theological mansplaining the students were encouraged to read her article "Father Knows Best: Theological 'Mansplaining' and the Ecclesial War on Women." Her presentation offered great points of discussion and compelling arguments on theology and feminism.
After the assembly, some students and faculty joined Dr. Imperatori-Lee for lunch to continue the discussion and have the opportunity to speak further with her.
