The Orthodox Christian Studies Center is delighted to present the ninth episode of its webinar series highlighting the scholarly insights and academic careers of female scholars whose research and writing explore some facet of the history, thought, or culture of Orthodox Christianity.
This episode features an interview with Carrie Frederick Frost, Ph.D., adjunct professor in the Global Humanities and Religions department at Western Washington University, and in theology at Saint Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Seminary. She is the author of Maternal Body: A Theology of Incarnation from the Christian East (Paulist Press, 2019) and the editor of The Reception of the Holy and Great Council: Reflections of Orthodox Christian Women (GOARCH, 2018). Her work attends to matters of women and mothers in the church, sacraments and practice, the reinstitution of the ordained order of deaconesses, Christian material culture, and contemplative prayer. She serves on the boards of the International Orthodox Theological Association and the Saint Phoebe Center for the Deaconess.
The episode will include some time for live audience questions, and the Center will archive each episode on its website and YouTube channel.
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
