CLGS Boswell Lecture: Professor Jay Johnson: "Enfleshing Eros, Healing Earth: A Queerly Christian Performance of Ecological Renewal in Three Acts"

The 13th Annual | 2020 CLGS John E. Boswell Lecture | Professor Jay Johson speaks on Enfleshing Eros, Healing Earth: A Queerly Christian Performance of Ecological Renewal in Three ActsONLINE via ZOOM

Decades of religious debate concerning sexuality and gender have surfaced rich theological insights well beyond questions of inclusion for LGBTQ-identified people, including the vital significance of erotic desire for thinking and speaking about God. Queer people of (Christian) faith can extend that insight toward other animals and ecosystems in a wider movement of ecological renewal. This lecture frames such hopefulness with the baptism of Jesus and the image of a river—an image that both opens and closes the Christian canon of Scripture, first for life (Gen. 2:9-10) and then for healing (Rev. 22:2).

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Jay Emerson Johnson, Professor of Theology and Culture, Pacific School of Religion
