Ingie Hovland – “How Did Christian Women Gain a Voice: the Mission Feminists in Norway around 1900”

Ingie Hovland is a lecturer with a joint appointment in the department of religion and the African Studies Institute at UGA. Her talk is part of Religion and the Common Good, a seminar organized by Robert L. Foster of the department of religion and Joshua Patterson of the Institute of Higher Education. The seminar explores how religious communities reach beyond the bounds of their own community to benefit people of other faiths or of no particular faith. This interdisciplinary initiative builds on existing networks between faculty, students, community members, and other professionals with research, teaching, and service interests in religion’s contribution to the common good.
