About the Event

Are  you a Christian doing the hard work of questioning, doubting, and  reformulating what you believe? If so, you’ve probably heard the  shorthand description for this process: “deconstruction.”  In this talk, Dr. Brock Bahler will explore deconstruction as a  creative and innovative practice that is not only about what we think but also about what we do

It’s especially valuable  as we reckon with racial injustice. Because many of our religious  settings are tethered to white supremacy, they can shape our spiritual  habits in harmful ways that are invisible to us.  But Dr. Bahler will share how he unlearned some of those habits and how  we can develop new practices that give life to faith!

Dr.  Brock Bahler is a Senior Lecturer and the Director of Undergraduate  Studies in Religious Studies at the University of Pittsburgh where he  teaches in the fields of philosophy of  religion, Christian philosophy, Jewish philosophy, philosophy of race,  continental philosophy, embodied cognition, and philosophy of childhood.  He edited the book The Logic of Racial Practice: Explorations in the Habituation of Racism.

This hybrid event will also be offered online.
