The Divine Economy & the Neo-liberal Order (Berkeley Palmer Lecture Lunch)

Friday, April 21st 2023, 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Dinner Board Room, Flora Lamson Hewlett Library, 2400 Ridge Road Berkeley, CA 94709

A lunch conversation with Jin Young Choi, PhD for GTU and UC Berkeley students & faculty (free admission and other schools welcome.)

How should Christians respond to global crises such as economic inequality, international migration, and climate change? Jin Young Choi, PhD, is professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. She is the author of Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment: An Asian and Asian American Feminist Reading of the Gospel of Mark. By weaving biblical narratives together with diverse interpretative threads, her work focuses on the intersection of race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, class, and empire. Dr. Choi invites us to perceive the presence of the mystery amidst our life together in solidarity with those invisible, voiceless, and displaced in today’s world. At this free luncheon, Dr. Choi will provide a brief presentation on these themes, and then open the time up for conversation.
