J. Kameron Carter to Visit Campus through Symposium on Race & Religion
03.26.14 |
The LVC Symposium on Race & Religion will host Dr. J. Kameron Carter for a two-day residency as the external scholar for this year's Symposium course. Carter will present a public lecture, "Postracial Blues," on Monday, March 31 at 7 p.m. in Zimmerman Recital Hall of the Suzanne H. Arnold Gallery.

Karter teaches theology and black church studies at the Divinity School at Duke University. He investigates the complex forms of identity (especially around race, gender, and nationalism) that have come to mark us all. He is particularly interested in the implication of Christian theological thought forms and the specific deployments of Christianity’s social imagination in these identity and social formations, the formations we inhabit.

Author of the much acclaimed book, "Race: A Theological Account" (2008) and numerous essays and articles, he is completing a new book titled "The Secular Jesus: Religion and the Project of Civilization" (forthcoming).

The Symposium on Race & Religion provides undergraduates a unique learning experiences, where students focus on Carter's work in a year-long program integrating several types of learning experiences. Students enroll in a seminar course on Carter's work, have personal encounters with Carter (click here for their Skype interview), attend a public lecture by Carter, and present their own research to the community and to Carter in reflection of his work.

This year's Research Symposium will be held April 1 from 4-6 p.m. in the Bishop Library Atrium. Carter will respond to each of the student presentations, providing these students the unusual opportunity to receive feedback from a widely respected, living philosopher. All are welcome to attend the event, which is part of Inquiry 2014.
