Hospitable Kinship in Theological Education: Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Teaching and Learning as Gift Exchange
Wimberly, Anne E. Streaty
Teaching Theology & Religion, v7 n1 p3-12 Feb 2004
Using an autobiographical approach for pedagogical reflection, the author raises questions about how to include "hospitable kinship" and "gift exchange" in teaching and learning. Her experience with a Zimbabwean community circle of hospitable kinship has prompted her to consider how this method of community formation might be employed in classroom situations. Definitions for hospitable kinship and gift exchange are woven throughout the narrative. Attention to the role of the teacher as "host" is provided as well. The essay prompts readers to turn their attention toward specific strategies that will aid in the formation of classroom community.
