The Center for Asian/Asian American Ministry and Theology will welcome Dr. Elizabeth Son for her lecture titled, "Performing Redress." Dr. Elizabeth Son is an Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre at Northwestern University. Her research focuses on the relationship between histories of gender-based violence and contemporary performance in the United States and South Korea. Her book Embodied Reckonings: “Comfort Women,” Performance, and Transpacific Redress (2018) examines the political and cultural aspects of contemporary performances (protests, tribunals, theatre, and memorial-building projects) that have engaged with the history of Japanese military sexual slavery.
Established by the seminary in 1984, the Center for Asian/Asian American Ministry and Theology serves the needs of Asian American students, pastors, and churches. The office provides services to churches throughout the North Central Jurisdiction by recruiting students for ordained ministry and by training seminarians, pastors, and lay leaders for effective ministry in cross-cultural settings.
