From the view that the study of global religions is being transformed by its engagement with feminist and postcolonial thought, the editors of Postcolonialism, Feminism and Religious Discourse argue that gender, religion, and colonial conquest are inseparable. Drawing from a range of materials, including religious texts, women's literature, field interviews, historical archives, critical theories, and rap music, this volume offers important critiques of the way religious and feminist knowledge is constructed. The contributors examine white feminist theology's misappropriations of Native North American women, Chinese footbinding, and veiling by Muslim women, as well as the Jewish emancipation in France, the symbolic dismemberment black of women by rap and sermons, and the potential to rewrite and reclaim canonical stories. This reassessment of religious studies offers new visions for the development of anti-colonialist, anti-racist, and anti-sexist discourses of liberation.
