If we think seriously about what it means when we say ‘God so loved the world…’ and Jesus being ‘flesh,’ perhaps we would embrace more boldly our bodies, our sexuality, our relations and become more fully human ourselves. The Assumption of Desire: Towards a Feminist Theology of Incarnation seeks to propose symbols and understandings of divine and female multiplicity to validate womens’ identity, libidinality and agency, and its diversity. It will also explore how language, narratives, and interpretations, both mythical and material, may enable women to rebirth, heal, transform and liberate themselves and their communities. The Babaylan, female priestesses, and Mebuyan, a goddess in Philippine myth will be presented as models of feminist multiplicity.
