The Hispanic House of Studies at Duke Divinity School will sponsor “Imagining a Shared Future,” a conversation with Dr. Robyn Henderson Espinoza on how we might imagine a future together in the midst of recurring violence. The event is part of the 2021 Sumérgete Webinar Series featuring webinars on a variety of topics for laity, pastors, and other interested persons on theological topics related to the Latinx community.
Henderson Espinoza is a scholar-activist, leader, teacher, public theologian, ethicist, poet of moral reason, and word artist. A visionary thinker, Henderson Espinoza has spent two decades working in the borderlands of church, academy, and movements seeking to not only disrupt but dismantle supremacy culture by focusing their Ph.D. studies on new concepts of being and becoming, decolonizing knowledge production, and bridging with radical difference. They enflesh a deep hope of collaborating in these borderland spaces where their work seeks to contribute to the ongoing work of collective liberation. Henderson Espinoza is the founder of the Activist Theology Project, a Nashville, Tenn., based collaborative project that seeks to work with the dominant culture and produces curriculum at the intersection of scholarship and activism.
