About the author (2011)

My primary field of preparation is the history of Christianity, particularly post-Enlightenment. My teaching interests are intrinsically cross-disciplinary. In religion they include religion and culture studies, contemporary American religion, theology, religion and ecology, and feminist studies in religion. In addition to teaching in the religion curriculum, I also teach courses on feminist theories and methodologies, ecofeminism, and global and transnational feminism. In my pedagogy, as in my research and writing, I therefore move freely among women’s and gender studies, environmental studies and international affairs.

Carol K. Oyster is Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse and author of "Groups: A User's Guide".

Jane E. Sloan is Women's Studies Librarian at Rutgers University. Formerly Cinema Librarian at the University of Southern California, she is the author of "Robert Bresson: A Guide to References and Resources" (1983).
