19TH ANNUAL EVELYN UNDERHILL LECTURE IN CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY

Registration opens May 1, 2019.

Saturday, July 13, 10:00-11:45 a.m.
Robsham Theater, Chestnut Hill Campus

Michele Saracino, professor of religious studies, Manhattan College

This presentation suggests that we imagine all of our interpersonal relationships—our personal and public ones—as uncertain, undomesticated, unexplored. Dr. Saracino’s hope is that if we exercise the same care, attention, and survival strategies in our interpersonal relationships that we do in the wild, we might create deeper, more empathetic bonds with all creatures in our midst, human and non-human.

11TH ANNUAL MARY OF MAGDALA CELEBRATION

Registration opens May 1, 2019.

Friday, July 19, 12:00-3:00 p.m.

St. Ignatius Church and Corcoran Commons, Heights Room, Chestnut Hill Campus

Rosemary P. Carbine, associate professor of religious studies, Whittier College

This celebration of the feast of St. Mary Magdalene begins with Mass and lunch, followed by a lecture.

In her presentation, Dr. Carbine offers critical and constructive theological reflection on the theological claims and political praxis of emerging U.S. social justice movements that exemplify a praxis of worldmaking, of imagining and incarnating the world otherwise than rising gender and sexual violence, xenophobic hate crimes, and white nationalist movements.  More specifically, this lecture engages feminist and womanist theory and theology to elaborate on love as a theo-political ethic of justice based on the Revolutionary Love Project and its trifold notion of love as seeing no strangers, tending personal and socio-political wounds, and birthing a new future. Pointing out unexpected key parallels with Mary Magdalene, this talk explores her witness as one theological model for women’s ways of doing public/political theology today, that is, of generating alternative possible futures of love and justice.

Free of charge, includes lunch.
