Does Religion Have A Future?
Thanks to all who joined for our annual conference. Videos will be up soon.
This day-long conference will feature William Schweiker, Ph.D. as the keynote speaker. Dr. Schweiker is the Director of the Martin Marty Center for the Advanced Study of Religion at the University of Chicago Divinity School and an expert in the field of theological ethics. His scholarship and teaching engage theological and ethical questions attentive to global dynamics, comparative religious ethics, the history of ethics, and hermeneutical philosophy. A frequent lecturer and visiting professor at universities around the world, he has been deeply involved in collaborative international projects.
His books include Mimetic Reflections: Power, Value and Conviction: Theological Ethics in the Postmodern Age (1998); Religion and the Human Future: An Essay in Theological Humanism (2008, with David E. Klemm); and, most recently, Dust that Breathes: Christian Faith and the New Humanisms (2010). Professor Schweiker has published numerous articles and award-winning essays, as well as edited and contributed to six volumes, including, most recently, Humanity Before God: Contemporary Faces of Jewish, Christian and Islamic Ethics (2006).
