Conversation with 2016 American Academy of Religion Excellence in Teaching Award Winner Joanne Maguire Robinson
Robinson, Joanne Maguire; Gallagher, Eugene V.; Pui-lan, Kwok; Pearson, Thomas
Teaching Theology & Religion, v20 n4 p356-371 Oct 2017
This conversation between the editors of "Teaching Theology and Religion" and Joanne Maguire Robinson continues an occasional series of interviews that has previously featured Jonathan Z. Smith, Stephen Prothero, Mary Pierce Brosmer, and Mary Elizabeth Mullino Moore. The exchange takes as its point of departure the teaching statement that Professor Robinson produced in support of her candidacy for the American Academy of Religion's Excellence in Teaching Award. Issues addressed include the impact of institutional context on one's teaching, teaching the humanities in universities that are ever more focused on job training, making the transition from a graduate program focused on research to teaching undergraduates who are unlikely to take even a second course in the study of religion, and ways in which women are challenged to navigate multiple responsibilities while striving to make their way in a male-dominated academy.
