The Borderlands as a Political and Religious Reality

,

The Stalcup School of Theology for the Laity at Brite Divinity School begins a new season with:

The Borderlands as a Political and Religious Reality

Thirteenth Jean and Parker Wilson Seminar

Saturday, September 7, 9:00am-1:45pm

Northway Christian Church, Dallas

Explore the complexity of borderlands and the challenges they present to conventional interpretations of Christianity.  This seminar discusses the historical evolution of the U.S.- Mexico border, including the original inhabitants, the making of the Spanish Borderlands, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and the creation of the political boundary that is now the border. Consideration of the interdependent nature of the two country’s economies lays the foundation for understanding the current economic, social, cultural, and political situation. The day concludes by examining the implications of borderlands on our understanding of Christianity.
