A panel discussion will follow the film featuring women in prominent roles in our community; panelists will share their reactions to the film, personal experiences, and answer questions from the audience. Many thanks to First Tennessee, Baker Donelson, and Christian Brothers University for supporting this effort. Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself. RSVP for the screening here »»

FOOD & FAITH LECTURE: Dr. Jennifer Ayres will speak on “Come to the Table: Faith and Our Food System” in the University Theater on March 26 at 7:00 p.m. The table around which Christians regularly gather—the Lord’s table—stands as a witness to God’s abundance, God’s presence in the material gifts of the earth, and God’s delight in the nourishment and enlivening of earthly bodies. Each time we share the bread and cup, we testify to God’s presence in the simple acts of eating and drinking together. What does this action mean, however, in the midst of a food system faced with such serious challenges as food insecurity, obstructed access to healthy and affordable food, community instability, environmental degradation, and the disenfranchisement of people? Jennifer Ayres’ research interests include religious environmental education; social activism and religious identity; faith formation in the context of popular culture; and feminist practical theology. She is the author of two books, Waiting for a Glacier to Move: Practicing Social Witness and Good Food: Grounded Practical Theology. Dr. Ayres is is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church and Assistant Professor of Religious Education and Director of the Religious Education Program at Emory University. A reception and book signing will follow the lecture. Copies of Good Food: Grounded Practical Theology will be available for purchase at a 10% discount. Sponsored by the CBU Department of Religion & Philosophy and the Memphis Center for Food and Faith.
