Latinas and the Bible: Re-Claiming Voices (HSP Exchange)
May 5, 2021 Time: 7:00pm - 8:15pm (EST)
For this second HSP Exchange, we are delighted to welcome HSP faculty member and Professor and Chair of Theology at Saint Anselm College, Dr. Ahida Pilarski. As we lead up to Mother’s Day, this will be a special opportunity to come together to discuss the intersections of Women, Latinidad, Biblical Hermeneutics, and the importance of these intersections for the Latinx community. The role of women in the Bible is of special importance and this will be a unique opportunity to learn from, and talk with, one of our country’s leading thinkers on this issue. After hearing Dr. Pilarski’s remarks, participants will be invited to a facilitated discussion on how these ideas concretely apply to their communities of concern.
The HSP Exchange provides a special opportunity for alumni, faculty, and allies of the Hispanic Summer Program to engage directly with some of our country’s best thought leaders on topics that are highly relevant to the Latinx community and the issues we face. In addition to a leading presenter, each Exchange event includes an opportunity for our community to dialogue together in a small group setting. We know that many of our alums and friends are excited about the opportunity to connect with each other, to support each other in community, and to continue the important conversations they began during their HSP experience.
