research assistance required

I am seeking research assistance for a project that involves developing a theological resource for undergraduate students in the area of indigenous women’s Christologies.

The project involves working with a number of local theologians, in particular selected indigenous woman (already identified), to clarify their theology (in both written and visual forms), and to create an accompanying resource guide by which undergraduate students can identify the resources and processes used in theological contextualisation and consider the questions raised for theological method.

Applicants will need skills including the ability to

  • interview
  • organise technologies (visual and written) to preserve the insights
  • write clearly
  • develop resources
  • think theologically, including in areas of Christology and culture

Funding is available for a total of 25 hours at Flinders University Causal Academic Rates. The project needs to begin by late September, 2014 and to be finished by early November, 2014.

Apply by email to Steve Taylor (steve dot taylor at flinders dot edu dot au) by Friday 6 September. Applications should include a CV and a letter of interest, addressing the skills required.

  1. It’s a shame it’s in Adelaide – a colleague and friend of mine here did her PhD on indigenous (Maori) women’s Christologies.

  2. Not a shame for those in Adelaide though. It is a start. The hope is simply to provide a group of Christologies that can talk to each other by way of being indigenous. There are so few indigenous resources for students to engage, so lets at least start with a few.

    We don’t have the resources or money to do more than make a start, for our context.

    But we do hope to video as well as write, so perhaps the resource might be used more widely. ‘

    Step by step …
