Join us at AAR to celebrate Rebecca Todd Peters
Beloved Auburn faculty member Walter Wink was known for his outstanding biblical studies on “The Powers,” studies integral to his passionate work for peace and nonviolence, LGBTQ inclusion, equality, and human rights.
Auburn’s mission seeks to build on Wink’s beautiful, radical legacy. Our reception at The American Academy of Religion (AAR) and Society of Biblical Literature’s (SBL) joint annual meetings welcomes scholar-activists like you, working on many justice fronts, to promote cross-pollinations between ideas and contacts, and to signal Auburn’s loud, proud support for your work.
We invite you to register now (it’s free) and to join us Monday night, November 19th, 7:30-9:00. This year, we are delighted to give the annual Walter Wink Scholar Activist award to a colleague who knows her scholarship is richer and more grounded because of her work for justice, and her work for justice is made more powerful by the sharp analysis of her scholarship.
This year we celebrate Dr. Rebecca Todd Peters!
A feminist, Christian social ethicist and Professor of Religious Studies at Elon University, Dr. Peters is a leading voice in the current scholarly conversation about reproductive justice, one of the most pressing moral issues of our time.
In partnership with Beacon Press, we are delighted to be able to offer copies of Dr. Peters’ Trust Women (2018) to the first 100 people to arrive at Auburn Seminary’s AAR/SBL reception, where our president, The Rev. Dr. Katharine Rhodes Henderson, will present Dr. Peters with the 2018 Walter Wink Award for Scholar-Activism.
Thank you for being a member of our community. Your leadership is imperative now and, through investing in Scholar-Activism, we are excited to work with you to tell the future story of America.
