Goshen: 8:00-11:00 a.m., 330 Lakeview Drive, Goshen, IN -- or --
South Bend: 12:00-3:00 p.m., 415 East Madison Street, South Bend, IN
Join Corinna Guerrero in the morning in Goshen, Indiana, or the afternoon in South Bend, Indiana, for a discussion about how minimizing certain aspects of biblical scripture may only be inhibiting our ability to relate to those who have experienced trauma.
Corinna will share her perspective on how Scriptures that contain murder (Gen. 4), rape (Gen. 34), or social desolation (the Prophets) are necessary components to helping those who have experienced trauma. Recovering a biblical history laced with loss helps us bridge the gap between trauma thousands of years ago and trauma today.
Corinna Guerrero is an adjunt lecturer at Santa Clara university, a Ph.D. candidate in Biblical Studies and a core member of the Feminist Biblical Hermeneutics Task Force, Catholic Biblical Association.
She graduated cum laude from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Comparitive Religious Studies. Building upon her ancient and modern language training at SJSU, Corinna moved first to Berkley, California to study at the Graduate Theological Union then second, and more briefly, to Jerusalem, Israel to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her work at both institutions earned her a Master of Arts in Biblical Languages degree with a concentration in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature from the Graduate Theological Union. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Biblical Studies with emphases in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature and Literary Theory at the GTU.
