This session considers the portrayals of gender in which communicate and cultivate gender-based limitations in the modern Christian social imagination. It is a portion from a larger project on identity in the world of sound bites. This session invites you to consider how media representations continue a long history of depictions that communicate a particular role for women in society and speaks for the church in contrast to the biblical witness.

When pondering the nature or essence of being, we consider topics such as whether or not men and women are fundamentally different. However, in society and the church, this conversation has historically excluded women of color—particularly black women—who were often considered subhuman. Through a combination of storytelling and practical tools, participants will learn more about what it is like to be made in the image of God as a black woman in a society and Christian context that refuses to acknowledge that the imago Dei resides in her.
This recording explores current research on gender differences in achievement motivation and draws implications from this research to the manner in which men and women find their place of service within the church.
This lecture presents a theology of culture in order to explore theology in culture. It explores why gender (an expression of culture) must be understood as both a context in which we read Scripture and a topic we understand through Scripture. Biblical themes are explored as parts of both the culture in which they were spoken, and those in which they are read. We move beyond thinking of anything in Scripture as "just cultural" to understanding everything in Scripture and daily life as properly and profoundly cultural.
The "Christians and culture" question commonly examines how Christians ought to relate to the culture in which they live. Christians also create subcultures of "Christian" images, norms, and roles that shape how males and females think of themselves, their social roles, and their relationships. This presentation will examine images of men, women, and gender roles in Christian advertising and media.
