What R U Reading?—Feminism and Theology

Feminism and Theology, edited by Janet Martin Soskice and Diana Lipton
New York: Oxford University Press, 2003

Many people consider feminist studies to be an academic “man-hater” club for women. Feminism and Theology, edited by Janet Martin Soskice and Diana Lipton gives the lie to this notion. The editors’ use of essays, interviews, and short stories to guide their theological inquiry captured my attention. The book allowed me to engage in an unbiased exploration of feminist studies as the authors address biblical interpretation, historical approaches, doctrine, and the philosophy of religion and ethics.

Heather Brennan is a student assistant at the circulation desk. She will complete a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in the spring of 2011.

Library GA Heather Brennan completes Marine Corps Marathon

Written by Dorothy Hargett, Access Services Supervisor

Congratulations to Heather Brennan, who completed the 34th Annual Marine Corps Marathon on October 25, 2009. Heather completed the 26.2 mile race in Arlington, Virginia in 4:51:56.

Heather Brennan is new this year to the Library Circulation department. She brings a beautiful smile, excitement, and excellent customer service to this team. About the experience of running a marathon, Heather wrote, “What an experience it was; 26.2 miles of hoping to finish and then the finish line comes and tears fall freely. My sister and I are the perfect running partners and the best support for each other in all the matters of life. She keeps me going when I think I have no strength left.”

Heather is an undergraduate student at Regent. She is majoring in English and plans to become a Shakespearian scholar. She has lived in Virginia since 2008, but still considers Chicago home-“nothing beats the changing of the seasons!”

The Library is proud to celebrate with Heather her completion of one of sports’ ultimate tests of character.
