    Feminism, Religion and This Incredible Need to Believe: Working with Julia Kristeva Again.Alison Jasper - 2013 - Feminist Theology 21 (3):279-294.
    In This Incredible Need to Believe, philosopher Julia Kristeva identifies the present as a time of crisis identified with ‘ideality’; historically significant cultural idealizations are failing us, leading to social and cultural breakdown, which Kristeva believes is not being addressed in ‘secular’ western societies. Remarkably, she defends the universal significance of what she defines as ‘belief’, revisiting earlier work on language, literature and the unconscious, against the background of a recent revival of interest in ‘religion’. In an introductory way, this (...)

    Michèle Roberts: Female Genius and the Theology of an English Novelist.Alison Jasper - 2011 - Text Matters - a Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture 1 (1):61-75.
    Michèle Roberts: Female Genius and the Theology of an English Novelist Since Simone de Beauvoir published The Second Sex in 1949, feminist analysis has tended to assume that the conditions of male normativity—reducing woman to the merely excluded "Other" of man—holds true in the experience of all women, not the least, women in the context of Christian praxis and theology. Beauvoir's powerful analysis—showing us how problematic it is to establish a position outside patriarchy's dominance of our conceptual fields—has helped to (...)

    Mortal Vulnerabilities: Reflecting on Death and Dying with Pamela Sue Anderson.Alison Jasper - 2020 - Angelaki 25 (1-2):97-108.
    A consideration of some of the embedded themes with which Pamela Sue Anderson was concerned during her career will bear out the suggestion that her approach to enhancing life was richly engaging and distinctive. However, it is perhaps the idea of vulnerability, most of all, that crystallizes this distinctiveness and addresses the aims of the Enhancing Life Project with which she was associated at the time of her death in March 2017, but also brings her philosophy as well as her (...)

    ‘RE/Trs’ is a Girl’s Subject: Talking About Gender and the Discourse of ‘Religion’ in UK Educational Spaces.Alison Jasper - 2015 - Feminist Theology 24 (1):69-78.
    This article addresses what appears to be a retrenchment into narrower forms of identification and an increased suspicion of difference in the context of educational policy in the UK – especially in relation to ‘Religious Education’. The adoption of standardized management protocols – ‘managerialism’ – across most if not all policy contexts including public educational spaces reduces spaces for encountering or addressing genuine difference and for discovering something new and creative. A theory of the ‘feminization of religion’ associated historically with (...)

  8. ‘The Past Is Not A Husk Yet Change Goes On’: Reimagining (Feminist) Theology.Alison Jasper - 2007 - Feminist Theology 15 (2):202-219.
    Feminism is still often dismissed as an outmoded or discredited concept, out of touch with the feelings and desires of real women and men or antithetical to any proper vision of Christianity. So for the feminist theologian it is as important as ever to find ways of discriminating between truth and falsity and of discerning a future path. In this piece I try to articulate one possible feminist approach using insights from the work of philosophers Deleuze and Guattari—particularly on assemblages—and (...)

    Taking Sides on Severed Heads: Kristeva at the Louvre.Alison Jasper - 2014 - Text Matters - a Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture 4 (4):173-183.
    The theorist and philosopher Julia Kristeva is invited to curate an exhibition at the Louvre in Paris as part of a series-Parti Pris - and to turn this into a book, The Severed Head: Capital Visions. The organiser, Régis Michel, wants something partisan, that will challenge people to think, and Kristeva delivers in response a collection of severed heads neatly summarising her critique of the whole of western culture! Three figures dominate, providing a key to making sense of the exhibition: (...)

  10. Womanspirit Still Rising? Some Feminist Reflections on ‘Religious Education’ in the UK.Alison Jasper - 2015 - Feminist Theology 23 (3):240-253.
    It is a complex and sometimes frustrating business to effect change that is in accordance with recognizably feminist principles in the world as it is and we inevitably risk confrontation, misunderstanding and compromise. In this paper I consider some of the complexities and obstacles to effecting feminist-friendly changes in educational spaces with specific reference to the field of teaching most familiar to a majority of us – Religion/religious Studies or Theology and Religious Studies. I suggest an approach to change based (...)
