Description:

Dr. Cristophe Ringer is an Assistant Professor of Theological Ethics & Society at the Chicago Theology Seminary. His research interests include theological and social ethics, African American religion, public theology, religion and social sciences, religion and politics, critical theory and African American religion, and cultural studies. He is particularly interested in African American religion as a site for understanding the relationship of self, society and the sacred as it concerns human flourishing. Ringer’s research currently focuses on the religious and cultural meanings that sustain and rationalize mass incarceration and other forms of social death in American public life.

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.
