Christian Ethics & Economic Justice Seminar
J.D. Seminar 1086
| 2 credit hours
This seminar surveys the literature on Christian Ethics & Economic Justice. Readings range from Catholic Social Teachings, British Christian Socialism, American Social Gospel and Christian Realism to more contemporary Liberation, Black, and Feminist approaches to economic justice. The seminar also examines the challenge to these interpretations posed by various Christian Conservative Theologies.
A few of the figures whose work on economic justice we will examine are R.H. Tawney, Walter Rauschenbusch, Reinhold Niebuhr, Gustavo Gutierrez, Brian Griffiths, Howard Thurman, James Cone, and Christine Hinze. The objective of the seminar is to explore the unique Witness these sources bear in a world of growing economic inequality, social stratification and injustice.
Students will complete 3 five-seven page projects across the semester and participate in the organization of an annual roundtable symposium on Christian Ethics & Economic Justice.
