Join us on Thursday, April 8 at 6:00 pm EST for a lecture on inner Animalities: Theology and the End of the Human with Dr. Eric Daryl Meyer. Professor Meyer is the Gregory Roeben and Susan Raunig Professor of Social Justice and the Human-Animal Relationship and an Assistant Professor, Theology Department at Carroll College.
In this talk, Meyer’s will explore how attempts to distinguish human beings from all other animals within the Christian theological tradition inevitably produce conflicted accounts of human life. Those conflicts at the heart of Christian self-conception, the book ventures, are also opportunities to think differently, see differently, and live differently—through the end of the human.
