Abstract / Video
From 2017 to 2019, I, with my students studying Feminist Theology, and Gender and Ministry, did art exhibition yearly at the New Asia College, Ch’ien Mu Library of the University to share our theological reflection on gender, our life stories, our relationships with God, and the imagined and constructed other. It is a good pedagogical attempt to inspire students to connect academia with their everyday lives’ concern. After three years of practice, I want to address a feminist reflection on artwork for theological pedagogy. Particularly, it can nurture a deeper reflective wisdom for everyday life struggles of theological students. Besides, the exhibition of students’ artwork is a good means for knowledge transfer to the students and staff from other departments in the university. This talk presentation will be conducted with Leo F.H. Ma, Head of Upper-campus Libraries, to share his experience to support teaching and learning activities using library’s facilities and space.
