A Question Mark Over My Head: Learning From the Narratives of Female Theologians in the Evangelical Academy

by Emily Louise Zimbrick-Rogers | July 31, 2015

This lecture presents the findings of a qualitative study of women in evangelicalism, using the Evangelical Theological Society's 2014 annual meeting as the research site. Themes from the research include a feeling of being stuck in the middle or marginalized; a need for networks, mentors, and supportive spouses and/or colleagues; combatting a lack of respect and lack of welcome; and navigating a space of entrenched complementarianism. This session also presents possible future steps for action for those who are interested in the evangelical academy and church.
