Lecture + seminar during Gothenburg Science festival 2018.
Hosted by Church of Sweden.

How can theology and queer theory illuminate debates over what makes a “we”? What are the consequences of envisioning Christians as people who practice, or don’t practice, inclusion? What does that contribute to a global, diverse, and conflictual world in 2018? With: Linn Tonstad, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Yale University.

The lecture is followed by a seminar featuring the bishop of Gothenburg diocese Susanne Rappman, associate professor Linn Tonstad, professor Ola Sigurdson and priest Sara Wrige.

What have we learned from queer perspectives on individual and collective levels? Can we keep a notion of a “we”, but also embrace diversity? What does it mean for church, society, politics, etc.? Medverkande: Ola Sigurdson, professor, religionsvetenskap, Göteborgs universitet, Susanne Rappmann, biskop i Göteborgs stift, Linn Tonstad, Associate Professor of
Systematic Theology, Yale University, Sara Wrige, präst.

Location: Pedagogen, Gothenburg university, Kjell Härnqvist hall.
