Reaching Out: Eschatological Dimensions of Trans Identity
Join us for our Lavender Lunch to hear Rowan Queathem speak on “Reaching Out: Eschatological Dimensions of Trans Identity.” The state of being transgender is to be constantly enacting and embodying an eschatological vision. Channeling the methodological lenses of groundbreaking queer scholars such as Judith Butler and José Esteban Muñoz, Queathem argue that trans lives and bodies are heavily colored with the utopian, just-out-of-reach essence of Christian eschatology. Examining transgender identity through the lens of eschatology brings a historically marginalized group into the forefront of progressive theology and has the potential to give all theologians new and powerful ways to talk about eschatology as a subject.
