Topic: Theologically-Engaged Anthropology: What Can Theology Contribute to Cultural Anthropology and Ethnography?
Abstract: There is a great need in anthropology for a theologically-engaged theoretical framework. Anthropologists experience new insights when they allow various theological perspectives to illuminate their research. This lecture will describe the purpose and results of a three year project, sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, bringing together scholars from a variety of backgrounds to develop a theoretical framework for providing anthropologists with a rationale and a model for using theology in their research.
A light lunch will be provided to all who RSVP using the form below by Tuesday, November 1, at 5:00 pm.
