  • Pamela Milne University of Windsor

Abstract

Can academic feminist biblical studies courses have a valid place within women's studies? This article examines how such courses, once housed in a religious studies program, have been refocused to equip women's studies students with analytical skills and to serve major themes in a women's studies curriculum.
