Religion & Spirituality
Last week, we heard Matt Bernico's lecture "Decolonizing Christian Higher Education." This week, Dean Dettloff poses questions to Bernico, and so do those who were present for the talk. How do we deal with questions of the Western canon? Can we talk about universal knowledge or a shared context while also talking the language of decolonization? What can institutions do beyond just including token voices on syllabi to decolonize their educational environments? Bernico fields these and other questions during the final Scripture, Faith, and Scholarship lecture of the 2017/18 academic year.
Matt Bernico is assistant professor of communication and media studies at Greenville University.
Critical Faith is sponsored by the Centre for Philosophy, Religion, and Social Ethics at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto. For more, visit icscanada.edu.
