September 17, 2015:The 29th Annual Mary Olive Woods Lecture

J. Kameron Carter, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School will present “Bonhoeffer’s (and Our) Postracial Blues.”  Carter describes the theme of the project: "Race is changing. Our engagement with it is changing. One of the new key cultural terms of this transformation is this notion of post racialism, and I am very interested in how this post racialism actually becomes a new form of racism and how theological and religious thought forms are a part of the processes of race.” Carter is the author of Race: A Theological Account (New York: Oxford University Press, 2008) and in his current works, he reimagines the identity of Jesus and the politics of his identity in light of the new, global realities of the 21st century.
