Dr. Doris Kieser, Assistant Professor at St. Joseph’s College, discusses ways in which the Catholic tradition has portrayed Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, as a model to women in the Church in various ways, which makes Mary a complex figure in the consciousness of females. A good deal of those portrayals circumscribe sexuality by the role of the woman in the world and project a female sexuality devoid of menstruation. In this presentation portrayals of Mary and, effectively, notions of purity and female sexuality are questioned. This event will be held in the Boardroom at St. Joseph’s College at 4pm on Wednesday, March 23.
