"Political Theology of The Earth", Catherine Keller at Goldsmiths 8th
March 2017

Dear colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to the 5th session of the Unit of Play's
Pluralistic Variations lecture series, with Professor Catherine Keller
(Drew University), who will be discussing her latest work on process
cosmology, ecofeminist theology and planetary politics. As ever, the
event is free, and everyone is welcome! Please do come and feel free
to circulate this to anyone interested!

8th March 2017 | 4.30-6.30pm | Deptford Town Hall (DTH) 109 |
Goldsmiths, University of London
Political Theology of The Earth
Prof. Catherine Keller (Drew University)
Discussant: Prof Vikki Bell (Sociology)

In a moment of perilous political repatterning, our planetary
entanglements emit signals of emergency. Immediate crises of
immigration, race and Islamophobia are thrown into competition with
the slower temporalities of climate change for progressive attention.
With antidemocratic politics rising, what can theology contribute to a
timely response? While current "political theology" may only obliquely
engage theology as such, let alone the earth, it exposes the
secularized sovereignties of the pater omnipotens as ongoing history.
Might Whiteheadian and new materialist cosmologies of entangled
multiplicity, read along their theological edges, help to trigger
–beyond hope for some new sovereign exception– an earth-minded
political inception?

Catherine Keller is Professor of Constructive Theology at Drew
University. Her work interweaves process philosophy with an evolving
feminist cosmopolitics, engaging questions of ecological, social, and
spiritual practice amidst an irreducible indeterminacy. Among her many
books are Apocalypse Now & Then: A feminist guide to the end of the
world (1997); The Face of the Deep: A Theology of Becoming (2002); God
and Power (2005), and The Cloud of the Impossible: Negative Theology
and Planetary Entanglement (2014).
