The Jellema Lecture Series is pleased to present Dr. Vincent Lloyd, of Villanova University, for the 2019 lectures.
These lectures will explore the implications of negative theology for Christian ethics. We can have much more confidence about who God is not, and what actions are ungodly, than about who God is or how Christians ought to live. The wisdom of the world, including ideologies of racism and sexism, gravely distort our perception and action, and Christian ethics must start with commending the virtues required to challenge such ideologies.
"Virtue Against Domination" Thursday, March 28, 3:30pm, Commons Annex Alumni Board Room
About the Lecturer:
Dr. Vincent Lloyd teaches and researches in the area of philosophy of religion, religion and politics, and race. He has authored several books, including In Defense of Charimsa (2018), Religion of the Field Negro (2017), and a forthcoming book Break Every Yoke: Religion, Justice and the Abolition of Prison (2019), with co-author Joshua Dubler. This book explores the way that changing understanding of justice and law allowed for the growth of prison in the United States. Dr. Lloyd's current work uses "legal history, Black studies, performance theory, and religion to explore what we might learn about the concept of dignity from the Black American experience."
