The last session of Teaching Religion in Public (TRiP) convened on Wed, Nov 3rd with Mihee Kim-Kort as our guest speaker. In this session, we took her teaching module, “Asian Women, Christianity, and Purity Culture,” as a case study in the application of a critical religious studies approach to racialized identity and experience. Does the word “critical” serve as a meaningful signifier in relation to the field of religious studies? What happens to our epistemological ground when we so center racialized identity as more than one vector but actually entangled with religion in significant ways? And to this end, what would it mean to orient religious studies toward justice?
