The Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative at Duke Divinity School is hosting the fourth seminar in its annual seminar series, "No Cure For Being Human" with Kate Bowler, Ph.D. Kate Bowler is a New York Times best-selling author, podcast host, and associate professor of the History of Christianity in North America at Duke University. After being unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage IV cancer at age 35, she wrote the New York Times best-selling memoir, Everything Happens for a Reason (and Other Lies I’ve Loved), which tells the story of her struggle to understand the personal and intellectual dimensions of the American belief that all tragedies are tests of character. Her TED talk on the subject has received over 6 million views to date, and on her popular podcast, Everything Happens, she talks with people about what they have learned in dark times and why it is so difficult to speak frankly about suffering. Her second memoir, No Cure For Being Human, will be released by Random House in September 2021.
Registration is required. These semi-monthly TMC seminars are a regular gathering of faculty, fellows, students, and others interested in the intersections of theology, medicine, and culture. The series is open to the public. Continuing education credit is available.
