S2:E5 Theology & Community

What do we learn about being human by listening to those who are suffering or experiencing structural injustice in society? How do we live together with those who are different than us? In this wide-ranging conversation we end by discussing important virtues to help us come together as a society with attention to these questions.

In this episode we talk to Dr. Morgan Liu and Dr. M Shawn Copeland. Dr. Liu is Associate Professor in Anthropology and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at The Ohio State University. He studies the globalization of economic elites in Central Asia, Muslims in former Communist countries, informal social networks as formations of power in Central Asian societies, emergent complexity of interactions between corporation/state/and non-state actors, urban space, and Islamic ideas of social justice.

Dr. M Shawn Copeland is Professor Emerita of Systematic Theology in the the Department of Theology and the Program in African and African Diaspora Studies (AADS) at Boston College. Professor Copeland the author of several books including  Knowing Christ Crucified: The Witness of African American Religious Experience and  Enfleshing Freedom: Body, Race, and Being.
