In the Facing the Anthropocene webinar series, Duke Divinity School Professor Norman Wirzba interviews leading scholars in political economy, history, anthropology, theology, philosophy, environmental humanities, and law, in order to examine the conditions under which a hopeful future might be imagined.
In this webinar of the series, Wirzba interviews Janet Soskice, the William K. Warren Distinguished Research Professor of Catholic Theology at Duke Divinity School. For over 30 years, she was on the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge, where she is professor emerita of philosophical theology. In her work, Soskice explores philosophy of religion, especially religious language and philosophical theology, names for God, gender and ethics, and, in her current project, God and creation. Her books include Metaphor and Religious Language, The Kindness of God, and Sisters of Sinai: How Two Lady Adventurers Discovered the Lost Gospels.
Wirzba is the Gilbert T. Rowe Distinguished Professor of Christian Theology at Duke Divinity and a senior fellow at Duke University’s Kenan Institute for Ethics, which is sponsoring the webinar series.
