19th ANNUAL Evelyn Underhill Lecture in Christian Spirituality

Intimate Wilderness: Navigating the Sacred Space between Self and Other

Registration will open on May 1, 2019

Saturday, July 13, 10:00-11:45 a.m.

Robsham Theater, Chestnut Hill Campus

Michele Saracino, professor of religious studies, Manhattan College

This presentation suggests that we imagine all of our interpersonal relationships—our personal and public ones—as wild, meaning unknown and undomesticated.  Dr. Saracino’s hope is that if we enact the same care, attention, and survival strategies in our interpersonal relationships as we do when we are in nature, then perhaps we can create deeper, more empathetic bonds with all the creatures in our midst, human and non-human.

STM, IREPM, and Weston Jesuit alumni/alumnae are invited to a continental breakfast and conversation prior to the Underhill lecture.

Saturday, July 13, 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.

Kresge Room, Robsham Theater

Sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry
