"The Analogy of Blood"
Wednesday April 3, 2013 - Religion Department Lounge - 1879 Hall
- Four Fragments Dripping with Blood -
Professor Rogers will offer a programmatic essay, heavy on Durkheim, Douglas, and Jay, at the border of theology and anthropology; gobbets on Leviticus and the sacrifice of Abraham; and a piece of torn flesh on the role of blood-talk in creationism. Eugene F. Rogers, Jr., Religion '84, is Professor of Religious Studies and Women's and Gender Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Member of the Center of Theological Inquiry, Princeton. His new book is Aquinas and the Supreme Court: Biblical Narratives of Jews, Gentiles and Gender (Challenges in Contemporary Theology).
