Michael L. Westmoreland-White (Levellers) — himself an academic theologian and Baptist minister’s husband — lists some women who blog academic theology. Or academic theology bloggers who are women. Or bloggers who happen to write about theology while being women in an academic way. Take your pick. (If you know of others, he’s taking additions to the list in his comments section.)
While I’m not a grand proponent of dividing academic and applied theology, it’s handy to have a list to broaden your reading. And if you are both a woman and a(n academic) theologian, but not a blogger, this might inspire you to jump in.
In any case, it’s more rewarding and dignified than worrying if your breasts are the right size for your career. (Surviving the Workplace)
Ooh, thanks for this link. Also, this Verdana-rich red-headlined layout is by far my favorite of all the ones you’ve tried. It’s readable, crisp, and very cool.
You are too funny. As I was running though it, I really did think “I bet Chris would like this for Philocrites. The structure and weight are similar.”
Well, I wasn’t personally worried about my breast size…. I do think that there is a large amount of generalized career advice for women that focuses on physical attributes as if it’s a moral imperative to present a certain appearance for men, which is what was at the root of the bOOb woman’s interview and book.
By worry, I meant that double standard put upon women to make their physical, even sexual, attractiveness match their professional assets if they are expected to succeed. (Good grooming is another matter.)
I’m sorry if I suggested otherwise.
Ah, all right. I thought you were saying I was preoccupied with breasts (and, if I’m honest with myself, you’d be right about that). I have at least two other breast and the workplace-related posts that I’ve drafted. There’s actually far more information than anyone would want to read….
And thanks for the female theologian link. That’s a good list.
Thanks for the link and shout-out. I don’t separate academic theology from applied theology. The contrast is between serious theology and just any rambling which happens to have a religious flavor to it. :-)
Scott, all your CSS are belong to us! But why don’t you adjust it to use Trebuchet MS and lots of orange and blue? Inquiring minds want to know. ;)
Well, perhaps I mean this:
“Red: the blood of angry men!
Black: the dark of ages past!” (Link.)
Or this. Or most likely this.
You’ll never know!
