16 Masons Drive, North Parramatta

Lecturer: Dr Di Rayson
Block teaching: 9 – 13 November, 9:30 am – 4:30pm

How do we as Christians begin to grapple with make and sense of climate change and its impact?

What are our responsibilities to those who are most impacted (e.g. Pasifika peoples, many in rural areas, poorer communities, wildlife?)

How do we begin to understand and unravel the patterns and logics that have led to this crisis (e.g. colonialism, whiteness, neoliberalism)?

This subject will draw upon a range of theological and other sources to engage with the complex challenges of climate change.

Dr Di Rayson is a sessional lecturer in Theology at the United Theological College and a Fellow of the Research Centre for Public and Contextual Theology (PACT). She holds a BN (Community Health) from Flinders and an MPH from Curtin. She has worked in Indigenous health, public health and public policy in Australia and the Pacific. She has a MTh and PhD (Theology) from The University of Newcastle. She is Assistant Editor of The Bonhoeffer Legacy: An International Journal and on the editorial board of Perpectiva Teológica.
