The Emerging Scholars Network is delighted to announce the launch today of a new podcast, Theology &. Many of our members have expressed interest in more theologically grounded conversations about faith and issues in our fields of study. We are delighted to co-sponsor this new effort toward that end.
Does academic research make a difference in the real world? Can faith and theology inform our research in other academic disciplines? Theology & is a new podcast that hosts conversations at the intersection of theology, the academy, and culture to discuss just these questions. Join co-hosts Rev. Dr. Jeff Liou and Dr. Emily Hill for conversations that bring research to life, explore why we love what we study, and how it hits the ground in tangible ways. Each episode features discussions with theologians and academics from different disciplines discussing their life, faith, research, and how we can engage them around important issues in our culture today. In the pilot season we’ll discuss topics like public discourse, political engagement, race and the church, race and education, and disability through the lenses of theology and law, politics, sociology, education, and bioethics. The first several episodes feature Dr. Kristen Deede Johnson & Dr. John Inazu on public discourse, Dr. Ned O’Gorman and Dr. Vincent Lloyd on political engagement and Korie Little Edwards and Soong-Chan Rah on Race and the Church.
