Feb 15: Group Discussion, “What is Contextual Theology?”

Wednesday, February 15, 6:00-8:00pm
Group Discussion on Contextual Theology

This informal discussion will center around the topics of contextual theology and contextual religious ethics. Please consider the following sub-questions in advance and come prepared to discuss them:

a) Do I consider my work contextual? In which way?
b) What are the marks of contextual thinking when considered in contrast to other approaches?
c) What is the role of the social sciences in my understanding of the contextual task?
d) Do I see my understanding of contextual theology/ethics as something shaping the field in the years to come? Why / how?

The gathering will be hosted off-campus. Dinner will be provided. Please email contact-global-christianities@lists.uchicago.edu for more information.
