Activist Theology: An Evening with Robyn Henderson-Espinoza

Event date: 
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Join Charis, The Agnes Scott College Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, and the Religious Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Departments in welcoming public intellectual and queer theologian, Robyn Henderson-Espinoza for a wide-ranging discussion in celebration of their new book, Activist Theology. Activist Theology bridges the gap between academia and activism, bringing the wisdom of the streets to the work of scholarship, all for the sake of political liberation and social change for marginalized communities. This is an invitation--a powerful and provocative call-to-action--to academic theologians to the work of social activism through movement building. Activist Theology summons all to take up radical acts of labor that uses scholarship and contemplation to build bridges with a difference and make connections of solidarity, rooted in collective action. Featuring poetry by Brittni "Ree Belle" Gray, this rich and interdisciplinary work draws on continental philosophy, queer theology, and critical class theory inaccessible and artful ways, using story, personal narratives, and sharp cultural analysis to bring the clarity to the methods, sources, and objectives of activist theology. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The suggested donation is $5. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
