The Hispanic House of Studies at Duke Divinity School will hold a webinar on "Bridging the Divide between the Academy and the Church: Emerging Latinx Scholars Reflect on Their Experiences in the Church and its Role in Their Theological Education." It will feature Duke Divinity Latinx alumni who are current doctoral students discussing their experiences in the academy and the role the church has played in their theological education.
Speakers will be: Yolanda Santiago Correa, Ph.D. in Religion in Culture at Southern Methodist University, whose research explores Afro-Latinidad and its relationship to Christianity; Stacy Guinto Salinas, Ph.D. in Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, whose research explores the faith and spiritual practices of undocumented immigrant women living in the southern United States; and Victoria Perez, Ph.D. in Religion at the University of Southern California, whose research explores Pauline literature, ancient Greco-Roman culture, race, ethnicity and gender, and reception history of Pauline literature.
This webinar is a part of a webinar series being sponsored by the Hispanic House titled 2020 Sumérgete Webinar Series on a variety of topics for laity, pastors, and other interested persons on theological topics related to the Latinx community.
The next webinar in the series will be "Public Theology from a Latinx Perspective" on Nov 23, 2020, from 5 to 7 p.m., in which Daniel Camacho, associate web editor at Sojourners magazine, will speak on the importance of theological discussions in the public sphere.
Registration is required for all webinars.
