PSR’s Dean’s Teas Steep Intellectual and Courageous Conversations
Join us online or in person in the Bade Museum for PSR’s second Dean’s Tea of the academic year hosted by PSR Dean, Dr. Susan Abraham and featuring influential theologian Dr. M. Shawn Copeland.
In “Saying Yes and Saying No — Practicing Our Faith,” Dr. Copeland explores the spiritual practice named in her book Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People — “Christian asceticism is not spiritual boot camp, but neither is it effortless. Learning when and how, to what, and to whom to give our yes or our no is a lifelong project.”
Dr. M. Shawn Copeland is Professor Emerita of Systematic Theology and the Program in African and African Diaspora Studies at Boston College. As a professor, Copeland has made groundbreaking contributions to the fields of theological anthropology and political theology as well as the African and African American intellectual history and religious experience.
