Spring term began this week and I am teaching a core class on Theology and Culture. Those are broad topics to gapple with in ten weeks, so I have tried to break things into some manageable pieces. Ten weeks, ten topics--macro topics such as the state of the world and theology to micro issues like media, body, design etc. I have also created a little bit of a starting point by highlighting a few key issues that we have to face as we tackle these issues. At first i was going to use 'post' but in the end I am just using 'after'--so after-darwin/freud/einstein are some of the central 'afters' we have to consider when thinking about what is happening in the cultural imagination. Stuff like that, we'll see how it works out but at least it brings up some key consierations and hopefully contributes to the deepening of the conversation.
