Women and the Academic Life

Women in academic vocations can have deeply satisfying and significant Kingdom influence, but they also must navigate particular challenges and obstacles from the academic system and the larger social context. This seminar will explore the potential and the pitfalls of the scholarly life as a context for women to exercise their gifts and participate in the mission of God.
