UNCA to Host Talk on Christian Non-Violence
Dr. Stanley Hauerwas
UNC Asheville's Humanities Student Association will host a talk on "Christian Non Violence and September 11: A Pacifist Response" by theologian Stanley Hauerwas at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at UNCA's Owen Conference Center. The event is free and open to the public.
Named "America's Best Theologian" by Time Magazine, Hauerwas has sought to recover the significance for understanding the nature of Christian life and the importance of the church. His work cuts across disciplinary lines, including systemic theology, philosophical theology and ethics, political theory, philosophy of social science, medical ethics, care of the mentally handicapped and issues of war and peace.
Hauerwas holds doctorates from Yale University and the University of Edinburgh. He taught at the University of Notre Dame for 14 years. He joined the faculty of Duke University Divinity School in 1984 and serves as the Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics. He also holds a joint appointment at Duke Law School.
