Power, Gender, and Race (RB009)

 

Religion does not just exist within the context of culture. What we think of as religion always also exists within contexts of power, gender, race, ethnicity, and other areas of identity and difference.
Or to put this another way: power, gender, and race are basic (and universal) aspects of human behaviour. To understand what humans do, we have to understand the contexts of power, gender, and race, etc in which that human action is located.

 

Whenever we do something, it can be understood and analysed (if we wish) in relation to power, gender, and race.

 

And likewise so with religion. A key part of understanding any religious context requires also asking similar questions.
