Graduate degree students enrol in WYB6837HF

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Tue TIME: 14:00 to 16:00

CREDITS: One Credit

Throughout the biblical story, land, economic justice, and food justice are intimately linked. These themes, in turn, are rooted in vibrant a relationship between creation and the Creator, not to mention creation and humanity. This course will explore such biblical themes in light of competing views of land, economics and justice both in biblical times and in our own context, locally and internationally. Interactions with indigenous views of land, land justice and food security for immigrants and the poor in our city, the transition town movement, bioregionalism, and watershed discipleship, will all contribute to a vision for a sustainable creation locally and on a global level.

COLLEGE: St. Michael's College SCHEDULE: Wed TIME: 17:00 to 19:00

This seminar offers an advanced introduction to comparative method in the contemporary academy by means of a close study of 4-6 significant comparative projects published in the last decade. Examples will be drawn from different sub-disciplines of theology and religion, including but not limited to ritual studies, philosophy of religion, comparative theology and/or ethnography. Students will engage various foundational questions of comparative method, including the presuppositions of the comparativist, the skillful construction of comparative examples, and the role of theory.
