2015 Orlando E. and Rose Costas Lecture

Date and Time:

Wed, 10/14/2015 -
6:15pm to 7:15pm

Category:

Venue:

Wilson Chapel

Event Details:

The Orlando E. and Rose Costas Lecture is an annual event at Andover Newton Theological School, bringing top leaders in Latina/o religion to campus each October. This year's speaker is Dr. Mayra Rivera, Associate Professor of Theology and Latina/o Studies at Harvard Divinity School. Dr. Rivera's talk is entitled “Becoming Flesh: The Socio-Material Implications of the Incarnation”, which will be loosely based on the contents of her forthcoming book Poetics of The Flesh (to be published by Duke University Press in October).

A rising star in the field of theological studies, Dr. Rivera has quickly developed a reputation as an innovative and trend-setting philosophical theologian who fuses together insights from continental philosophy, critical theory, Latin American studies, and constructive theology. Having shown the way in which our prevalent Modern Western understanding of transcendence could be revised to allow for a healthy honoring of the sacredness of the temporal and the material in her earlier work, she has recently turned her attention to a reconsideration of the human body itself.

We invite you to join us for an evening of enlightening reflection, as Dr. Rivera delivers the 14th annual Orlando and Rose Costas Lecture in Latino/a Religion and Theology at Andover Newton Theological School while drawing from her forthcoming book Poetics of the Flesh. The Costas Lecture is free and open to the public, and will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 6:15-7:15 p.m. in Wilson Chapel.

A reception will follow the lecture in the foyer of Wilson Chapel, with light snacks provided by the Admissions office. This event is free and open to the public. Download a printable flyer and share the news about this event!
