After Liberation Theology: Latin American Christianity and the Future
Ivan Petrella, University of Miami
One of the freshest voices in liberationist thought, Petrella is the author of The Future of Liberation Theology, and Beyond Liberation Theology. Utilizing legal theory, economics, and medical anthropology, Petrella has reinvigorated debates about culture, politics and religion.
In this talk, Petrella will map out liberation theology’s rise and fall after the end of the Cold War, and consider the prospects for a renewed role for radical Christianity in Latin America.
This Thursday, October 23rd, 4:30 Kohlberg Hall, Room 226.
