Narrating Lives, Narrating Faith: "Organic Hybridity" for Contemporary Christian Religious Education
Tran, Mai-Anh Le
Religious Education, v105 n2 p188-203 Mar 2010
This article proposes that Christian Religious Education (CRE) today requires the practice of "organic hybridity" in fluid and shifting "diasporic spaces," the prerequisite for which is the recognition that "hybrid subjectivities" is characteristic of our current postmodern, postcolonial, transnational, globalized world. Toward this aim, CRE must strive to understand how contemporary hybrid subjects negotiate identities and faith in the way they narrate situationally, improvisationally, and organically about the inter-"activity" between human and Divine for everyday living. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
