HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL – Feb. 28, 2017 – SHEROES & HEROES: ACTIVISTS

Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Pastor Brian Merritt

That faith be analyzable does not necessarily imply a method for getting by without it. . . .
Julia Kristeva

Julia Kristeva is a Bulgarian-French philosopher, literary critic, psychoanalyst, feminist, and, most recently, novelist, who has lived in France since the mid-1960s. She is now a professor at the University Paris Diderot.

Kristeva became influential in international critical analysis, cultural studies and feminism after publishing her first book, Semeiotikè, in 1969. Her sizeable body of work includes books and essays which address intertextuality, the semiotic, and abjection, in the fields of linguistics, literary theory and criticism, psychoanalysis, biography and autobiography, political and cultural analysis, art and art history. She is prominent in structuralist and poststructuralist thought.

Today’s Action: What are things that you find about yourself that you continue to have negative opinion? Especially think of those things that may be morally neutral.  Write out all the things that are outside of you in culture that inform those negative opinions.

Today’s Sharing: Share your stories of those things in culture that give you a negative self image with us on the Holy Heretic Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine.
