Le Moyne College Hosts Talk on Nation, Gender and Sexuality

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Gay marriage, abortion debates, the role of women in the work force - why are issues of sexuality politically so important in modern nations?

Harvard University Professor Susan Abraham will address these issues from the perspective of post-colonial theory and religious studies in a talk at Le Moyne College on Friday, April 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the Reilley Room, located in Reilly Hall. Her talk is titled “Nation, Gender and Sexuality.”

Susan Abraham, an assistant professor at Harvard Divinity School, is the author of “Identity, Ethics, and Nonviolence in Postcolonial Theory: A Rahnerian Theological Assessment” and co-editor of “Shoulder to Shoulder: Frontiers in Catholic Feminist Theology.” Her publications and presentations weave practical theological insights from the experience of working as a youth minister for the Diocese of Mumbai, India, with theoretical perspectives from postcolonial theory, culture studies and feminist theory.

The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the gender and women’s studies program. For more information, call (315) 445-4512.
