2010 Gilberto Castañeda Lecture

“Blinding Me with Queer Science”

Dr. Ellen T. Armour, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter
Associate Professor of Theology and Director, Carpenter Program of Religion, Gender and Sexuality
Vanderbilt Divinity School

Thursday, May 6, 2010
Reception, 5:00 p.m., First Floor Cloisters
Lecture, 6:00 p.m., Graham Taylor Hall

The 2010 Gilberto Castañeda Lecture followed Dr. Armour’s research interests in feminist theology, theories of sexuality, race, gender, disability and embodiment, and contemporary continental philosophy. She is the author of Deconstruction, Feminist Theology, and the Problem Of Difference: Subverting the Race/Gender Divide (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1999) and co-editor of Bodily Citations: Judith Butler and Religion (Columbia University Press, 2006). Her current book project, tentatively entitled Signs and Wonders: Theology After Modernity, will diagnose and craft a theological response to the shifts in our understanding of "man" and "his" others (sexed/raced, animal, and divine) as modernity declines.
