Research Seminar in Inter-Religious Relations - Dr Simone Kotva 'An Enquiry Concerning Non-Human Understanding: Crossing Species by Crossing Disciplines' with Rev Dr Tim Jenkins as Respondent Friday, 24 January 2020 1.30-3.30pm in the Lightfoot Room

You are warmly invited to attend an Inter-Religious Relations Research Seminar (preceded by a sandwich lunch in the Selwyn Room at 1pm).

Dr Simone Kotva has sent the following summary of her talk, which will be responded to by Rev Dr Tim Jenkins:

The 'non-human' eludes our grasp. To speak of it is to invoke all the spirits, ghosts, gods, monsters and other immeasurable, inconceivable agencies that have shaped human ways of earth-living. Theology may have plenty of stories about the non-human, plenty of ways of talking about gods and the nature of gods, but how often does talking about the non-human and writing about the nature of non-humanity becoming thinking non-humanly? How does the story ofthe non-human actually help (if at all) to get results environmentally, ethically and politically? This seminar will explore 'god-talk' as insurgent discourse that crosses species by crossing disciplines, faiths, and practices.

Colleagues, undergraduate, MPhil and PhD students from within and outside the Faculty of Divinity are welcome.
