April 10: Carol Wayne White to Speak About Black Lives and Sacred Humanity

Carol Wayne White, Bucknell religious studies professor, will deliver a free, public talk entitled “Black Lives and Sacred Humanity” on Wednesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. in Willard Smith Library, Vaughn Literature Building. Her talk is part of the Bucknell Griot Institute Spring 2019 Lecture and Performance Series, “The Black Unfamiliar in the 21st Century,” and co-sponsored by the University’s Department of History and was re-scheduled after being postponed by inclement weather on February 20.

White is author of Poststructuralism, Feminism, and Religion: Triangulating Positions (2002); The Legacy of Anne Conway (1631-70): Reverberations from a Mystical Naturalism (2009); and Black Lives and Sacred Humanity: Toward an African American Religious Naturalism (2016). She is currently writing a book that explores the tenets of deep ecology and insights of religious naturalism expressed in contemporary American nature poets and writers. She has published articles on process philosophy, religious naturalism, and critical theory.

White has received national awards and fellowships, including an Oxford University Fellowship in Religion and Science, a Science and Religion Course Award Program Development Grant (The John Templeton Foundation), and a NEH Fellowship.

White’s books will be on sale at this event.
