Faith, Feminism, and Being Unfinished
The work of Anne E. Patrick, SNJM, focused on feminist theology, religion, and literature. As a professor and critical scholar, she broke new ground in a number of Catholic theological disciplines, including feminist ethics, creativity, conscience, liturgy, and contemporary expressions of religious life. Georgetown University convened a panel to discuss On Being Unfinished (2017), a selection of Patrick's essays on these topics. Participants highlighted sections of the book—which offers fresh insight on post-Vatican II theological development in the Catholic Church in the United States—before taking questions from the audience.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; the Catholic Chaplaincy; Georgetown's Department of Theology; Georgetown's Office of Mission and Ministry; Orbis Books; Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary; the Georgetown Women's Alliance; and the Georgetown University Women's Center.
