Theologies of the Anthropocene: ecological thinking in a post-secular age

1:00pm-1:10pm on Sunday 4 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

What is the Anthropocene and why does theology matter to our planetary crisis? The Anthropocene has impacted our understanding of the human by reminding us that the human is not and indeed never could be merely human, that we are entangled with other species and life forms. In this talk, Dr Simone Kotva explores the theological origins of the idea of entanglement and thinking with ecology as a "spiritual realism" for a post-secular age. Dr Kotva is Affiliated Lecturer at the Faculty of Divinity, where she co-teaches the Theology in the Anthropocene with Dr Hjördis Becker-Lindenthal. She is also a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the "Ambivalence of Nordic Nature: Gift, Guilt, Grace" project at the University of Oslo.

This talk is part of the Quick Bites // Religion and Theology at Lunchtime series.
