In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Political Theology Network presents the 2021 Winter Workshop Series online via Zoom. Workshops will be held weekly on Mondays from January 4 to March 1. We are excited to spotlight a range of papers from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior faculty on themes of Black mourning, biosecurity, extinction, death, vulnerability, and care.
Weekly meetings from January 4th to March 1st at 4:30 – 5:50 pm EST (unless otherwise noted)
