Dancing with Gaia: Imagination & Art

Imagination and art serve important yet often unacknowledged functions in the development of theology.

Drawing upon her experience composing music for a feminist theological art exhibit at the University of Winchester, Dr Ursic will explore the role of the arts and imagination in theological development.  The lecture will include music.

Dr Elizabeth Ursic is Co-Chair of the Women’s Caucus at the American Academy of Religion. She is a professor of Religious Studies at Mesa Community College in Phoenix, Arizona. She was a fellow at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. Her book, Women, Ritual, and Power (State University of New York Press 2014) includes a chapter on the Church of Scotland that she wrote when she was a Visiting Scholar at New College in 2013.

This lecture is part of the Religion and Ethics in the Making of War and Peace (Relwar) Project. For more information see: Relwar: Religion and Ethics in the Making of War and Peace
