April 1: Scripture, Faith, and Scholarship Symposium with Dr. Nadine Bowers Du Toit

Born Free? South African Young Adults, Inequality, and Reconciliation in Stellenbosch:
A Conversation with Dr. Nadine Bowers Du Toit

Thursday, April 1st at 1:00pm EDT
via Zoom (details below)

We would like to invite you to join our next Scripture, Faith, and Scholarship symposium, taking place virtually on April 1st. 

To lead us in this edition of our semiannual symposium, we welcome Dr. Nadine Bowers Du Toit, Director of The Unit for Religion and Development Research (URDR) at the University of Stellenbosch. The majority of Dr. Bowers Du Toit's research has focused on the intersection between religion, poverty, and inequality, with a special focus on the role of local congregations and Faith Based Organisations in addressing these pressing concerns within the South African context. In her opening presentation, Dr. Bowers Du Toit will share with us her most recent research on Christian youth and inequality in post-Apartheid South Africa.

In keeping with our current institutional focus on race relations and systemic racism, we have invited Dr. Bowers Du Toit to offer her insights into the ways in which Christianity-–and in particular biblical interpretation–is shaping the responses of South Africa youth to issues of inequality, marginalization, and violence. We are thrilled that Dr. Bowers Du Toit has agreed to join us, and we look forward to reflecting with her on these community-driven, scripturally-informed responses to systemic oppression.

This event is sponsored by the Centre for Philosophy, Religion, and Social Ethics.
