THEO 7711 Duffy Lectures: Ecological Theology in Global and Ecumenical Perspective (Spring: 3 )
This graduate seminar will incorporate the five Duffy Lectures on “Ecological Theology” given by Professor Denis Edwards of the Australian Catholic University in Adelaide during the 2018 Spring semester. Beginning with the loss of biodiversity as a theological problem, we move on to explore the ecological and cosmic promise of Christian theology by rethinking and reframing some traditional Christian doctrines (e.g., God/Trinity, creation, humanity as Imago Dei, Incarnation, the Holy Spirit, etc.) using ecological lenses drawn from a variety of cultural perspectives.
Instructor(s): MaryAnn Hinsdale
