This chapter attempts to renew and develop under the present conditions of globalization the position that theological insight can be gained from the materiality of human lives, in which physical processes and cultural representations are inextricably bound together. To this end, it explores two areas in which little feminist theological work is currently being done, and which are crucial to the operations of globalization and our understanding of them: science and technology, and popular culture.

Keywords: globalization; feminist theology; science and technology; popular culture
