21st Annual Bonhoeffer Lectures in Public Ethics: Everyday Ethics for Exceptional Times


The 21st Annual Bonhoeffer Lectures in Public Ethics will be held at Perkins School of Theology | Southern Methodist University and the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum in Dallas, TX, on May 19-21, 2022. The theme of the Lectures is “Everyday Ethics for Exceptional Times.” Lecturers will draw on Bonhoeffer’s doctrine of the mandates to examine politics, family, church, and culture.


The Lectures begin on Thursday evening, May 19, at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum. Dr. Gunter Prüller-Jagenteufel from the University of Vienna will give the opening lecture. On Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21, the Lectures will be held at Southern Methodist University, beginning with a symposium on Friday that interrogates the morality of the modern nation state, and concluding on Saturday with lectures on the relationship between the church and society. Lecturers include Robin Lovin, Mary Ellen O’Connell, Esther Reed, Charles Mathewes, and Michael DeJonge.
