Abstrak:

Theorist Edward Said has defined criticism as ?life enhancing and constitutively opposed to every form of tyranny, domination and abuse, its social goals are non-coercive knowledge produced in the interest of human freedom? (1991-29). Said?s own critical perspective has been generative of a set of theories known as postcolonialism. What happens when we use some of the insights of postcolonial criticism to read and interpret religious texts? What new critical insights might be introduced into our understanding of particular religious texts, religious practice and relationship between different religions?

In this presentation we will read a religious text from the Christian scriptures (Mark 7: 25ff.) through a postcolonial critical lens asking how such a lens might differ from traditional or liberation perspectives and how such a lens might open new arenas of inter-religious dialogue.
