Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) at Duke Divinity School will hold a public panel discussion on “Art and Theology in Times of Turmoil” hosted by N.Y. Times bestselling author and Professor Kate Bowler and featuring poet Christian Wiman and visual artist Lanecia A. Rouse-Tinsley discussing what role the arts play in the midst of life's most difficult questions.
This panel discussion is part of DITA10: A Symposium on the Future of Theology and the Arts, in which DITA is celebrating a decade of pioneering scholarship, reflecting on today’s landscape, and imagining together a future for the field of theology and the arts.
Bowler, professor of Christian history at Duke Divinity and author of the bestseller Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved, will lead the discussion on how the arts can give voice to both pain and hope in Christ during life’s most tumultuous seasons. The event also will be a live podcast that will be recorded and aired later this year as part of Bowler's highly popular "Everything Happens" podcast.
After the panel discussion, there will be a reception in Duke Chapel with a visual art showcase of DITA10 artists.
This event is included in the DITA10 Symposium registration, however, individual tickets to this event may be purchased for non-registrants through the Duke Box Office for $10 each ($5 Duke students).
