Rosetta E. Ross

February 2016

Rosetta Ross
Rosetta E. Ross, Ph.D., professor of religion, published a co-edited the volume  "Unraveling and Reweaving Sacred Canon in Africana Womanhood," (Lexington/Rowman and Littlefield, December 2015). In this collection co-edited with Professor Rose Mary Amenga-Etego of the University of Ghana, continental and diasporan African women interrogate the concept “sacred text” and analyze ways oral and written religious “texts” intersect with violence against African-descended women and girls. While the sanctioned idea of a sacred text is written literature, this project interrupts that conception by drawing attention to speech and other embodied practices that have sacral authority within the social imaginary.
