Description:

Dr. Adam Kotsko is on the faculty of the Shimer Great Books School at North Central College, where he teaches widely in the humanities and social sciences. His research focuses on political theology, continental philosophy, and the history of Christian thought. He is the author, most recently, of The Prince of This World, a study of the political legacy of pre-modern Christian ideas about the devil, and Neoliberalism’s Demons, which argues that the contemporary political-economic order functions on the basis of a logic of moral entrapment that echoes the theological concept of demonization.

Northwestern Theology Colloquium expanded last year into a joint effort between Northwestern University and Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. The theme last year and this year is to focus on the life and work of James Hal Cone, late theologian and initiator of a form of black critique known as black theology. The colloquium this academic year is especially important because it will be done in conjunction with a major gathering to examine the life and work of James Cone, planned for Nov. 1-2, 2019 at Northwestern.
