The Theology Workshop welcomed Kristine Culp, Associate Professor of Theology and Dean of Disciples Divinity House; Jeffrey Stackert, Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible; and Cynthia Lindner, Director of Ministry Studies and Clinical Faculty for Preaching and Pastoral Care, to reflect on their own experiences and best practices for creating classroom cultures and environments that intentionally honor the body as a constitutive part of being human. The panelists wrestled with such questions as: How can teachers use their own embodied presence in the classroom—and the embodied presences of their students—to deepen and inflect learning? What kinds of pedagogical practices work to unveil and dismantle oppressions in the classroom that silence or privilege certain embodied experiences? How can existing structures with which bodies may be at odds—physical space, institutional culture—be shifted, challenged, or named in order to create an academic space where bodies are not something to be overcome or managed, but to be received with hospitality as essential parts of human life and even scholarly inquiry?
