Resistance Theory

Resistance theory seeks to identify the input or absence of minority voices in literature, especially in biblical literature or religious texts.

Resistance literature represents a way of including and identifying resistant voices in a form that does not explicitly offend the conventions of the majority. Signs of implicit and peaceful resistance have been identified in poetry, novels, cinema, and other art forms. By identifying these forms and their message, we can learn more about the intrinsic complexities in ancient societies, thereby also prompting us to reflect upon ourselves. A multi-dimensional view of the world and of the people around us is an essential step toward collaboration and inclusion.
