December CCS Friday – Transgressive Devotion
On Friday, December 10, 2021, the Centre for Christian Studies hosted an online presentation by Emmanuel College professor Natalie Wigg-Stevenson and doctoral student Ben Menghini entitled “Rearranging Theological Imaginaries: Performing texts and transgressing book covers”. In Natalie’s new book “Transgressive Devotion: Theology as Performance Art” she argues that theology done as performance art stops trying to describe who God is, and starts trying to make God appear. Ben offers theological reflection visually by drawing on imagery from science fiction book covers. (His theological redesigning can be seen at https://theologyscifi.tumblr.com )
Online conversations to help us all to respond faithfully to emerging issues in local contexts. These workshops are open to anyone who might be interested. Each session will be on a Friday from 12:00 to 1:00 Central (Winnipeg time) and in the form of a Zoom workshop. There will be a presentation that will be recorded for future viewing, plus opportunities to engage with the ideas in small groups.
Sessions are free but you must register.
