Virgin Territory: Configuring Female Virginity in Early Christianity
Join the Union community on Saturday, March 4 at 10:00 am ET for a webinar celebrating the publication of Virgin Territory: Configuring Female Virginity in Early Christianity by Julie Kelto Lillis, Assistant Professor of Early Church History. Panelists Maia Kotrosits, Saadia Yacoob, Amey Victoria Adkins-Jones, and moderator Shola Adegbite will join Dr. Kelto Lillis in discussing the book and the ways historical work informs the work of justice. Register to receive Zoom webinar login information.
Drawing from their own analysis of gender and sexuality in ancient or medieval texts, the guest speakers will connect academic and social justice-oriented contributions of Virgin Territory with their projects in diverse areas of religious and theological studies. The discussion will highlight the necessity of historicizing concepts that circulate in current societies and the value of investigating the past to reconsider the present and reimagine the future.
