This week we focused on thinking how latinidad (as ethnicity and identity) corresponds with gendered and religious identity. We discussed various terms of engagement of this correspondence, such as comunidad, machismo, marianismo, en conjunto, and womanist theology / teología mujerista, among others. We sought to understand and read competently the ways in which religion, gender, and ethnicity/identity correspond with each other in the many worlds of Latinas.
The articles by Rosario Rodríguez, Dávila, Carmona, and Delgado on “US Latino/a Contributions” and Gonzalez on “nuestra humanidad” and Latina Theological Anthropology touched upon these questions.
By Sunday at 5pm, please post a brief reflection (1-2 paragraphs) with questions, comments, inquietudes (restlesness), or epiphanies you may have had while reading these essays and later on, while discussing them in class.
