THL211: CREATION AND ECOTHEOLOGY
Australia and the Pacific are at the forefront of climate change and its devastating effects. How do we as Christians begin to grapple with make and sense of this new reality? What are our responsibilities to those who are most impacted (e.g. Pasifika peoples, many in rural areas, poorer communities, non-human animals)? How do we begin to understand and unravel the patterns and logics that have led to this crisis (e.g. colonialism, whiteness, neoliberalism, etc.)? How can Scripture and Christian theology help to orientate and sustain us in the midst of climate change?
This co-taught subject will include readings and presentations on the climate emergency itself, as well as on theological figures and concepts that can assist with a response. Among other things, readings and presentations will focus on creation, the Anthropocene, ecotheology, Pasifika theologies, and Christian activism.
