This subject examines the development, critique and reformulation of theological ideas regarding humanity and humanity's relation to God and creation. Traditional themes in theological anthropology are considered, including creation, the imago dei, sin, grace, salvation and vocation. Challenges to historical formulations, including the challenge of difference, are brought into conversation with contemporary approaches such as feminist, postcolonial, ecological, queer and liberation discourses.
