Loyola at a Glance
Lecture uncovers new ways of thinking, talking about Christianity
January 24, 2014
A free, public Loyola University New Orleans lecture Thursday, Feb. 6 aims to probe new and unsettling ways of thinking and talking about God. Presented by the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences and the Department of Religious Studies, the “Displaced Christianities: Mapping Post-Colonial Theology” lecture features Loyola’s own systematic theology professor, Judith Gruber, Ph.D.
The lecture, part of the H. James Yamauchi, S.J., Lectures in Religion series at Loyola, is set for 7 p.m. in the Audubon Room, located on the second floor of the Danna Student Center on Loyola’s main campus. A reception at 6:15 p.m. precedes the lecture.
Gruber will draw on the premise that those in power have the auhtority to shape knowledge in a way which reinforces their power. She will explore how that core of post-colonial thought can be used to uncover alternative stories that may challenge traditional understandings of Christianity.
