No-Bodies: On the Imageless image of God

26 October 2018 3:00pm4:00pm
This paper examines the ways in which the attribution of human characteristics and physical form to God, particularly in the form of Christ, produces a gendered, raced, ableist, and sexed imagery that provides ideals and norms for actually existing bodies. I will suggest that one possible way to address this problem, one that goes beyond simply multiplying images of the divine, is to de-image or de-form the divine.
