Lecture: What Went Wrong with the World? "Redeeming Sin" Amidst Ecological Destruction


Location: 306 LaFortune Student Center (Gold Room)

In an age of ecological destruction, collaborative efforts are crucial for describing the many rotten 'fruits' of this destruction, as well as uncovering its 'roots' and finding more sustainable alternatives. What is the role of Christian theology in this multi-disciplinary task? One contribution is that of social diagnostics or understanding what has gone wrong with the world. In this lecture, Ernst Conradie will explore the plausibility of 'redeeming' sin-talk amidst ecological destruction.

Ernst M. Conradie is Senior Professor in the Department of Religion and Theology at the University of Western Cape in South Africa.

This lecture is hosted by the Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing and co-sponsored by the Environmental Change Initiative.
