THEO 253 - Abuelita Theology

3 Credit Hours
This course explores Abuelita (grandmother) theology as part of contemporary U.S. Latinx theological discourse. It focuses on the figure and role of the abuela or grandma/women’s wisdom and voices as a metaphor to critically reflect theologically; the wisdom and voice of the abuelas represent the narratives, historias del corazón (stories of the heart), attitudes, practices and devotions that have shaped identity and memoria histórica (historical memory) of particular communities. In addition, students will reflect on their own lived experiences, social contexts, and faith traditions as critical in theological reflection and action. This course will offer practical theological components or experiential learning as part of the curriculum.

Listed also as SWG 253
