1st semester of 2016: Johnny Hill (Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion; Claflin University)

Together with Professor Dr. Claudio de Oliveira Ribeiro and Professor Dr. Helmut Renders

Theme: Liberation and Reconciliation

Description
The course explores the theological, philosophical and ethical dimensions of major religious and cultural movements for peace, justice, liberation, and reconciliation in the Twentieth Century up to the contemporary era. Considering the thought of central figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Mpilo Tutu, Mother Teresa, and Leonardo Boff, students will reflect on the similarities and differences, from the Civil Rights Movement in the American South, Afro-Brazilian and Black consciousness movements, the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, ecological movements, to the Landless People's movement of Brazil. Students will engage the theological and philosophical roots of the ideas that have transformed nations and the world, and what it means for addressing key ethical questions in the world today--for instance, what is the role of religion in ending world hunger? How do justice-seeking individuals and groups within nation-states attend to the problem of cultural and militaristic violence?; and the broadly related question of differences in the age of globalization.
