Scholaristas is a new blog. I love it.
It is written by a historian, a literature and religion scholar, and a political scientist. No wonder it rocks!
The thing that I love about Scholaristas, is that it is an academic approach to feminism and women studies. It draws upon feminist theory and feminist methodology. So do I!
I am often saddened be the disconnect between movement feminism and feminist theory and methodology. I think this frustration is similar to that which a theologian might have over people of faith not being willing to engage issues of theology because they are more comfortable just reciting articles of faith. I am not sure what to do about that gap, but Scholaristas helps to lessen my frustration.
If you are a fan of FPR, you will enjoy Scholaristas.
