(Mark 8:29): Questions of Identity in Theology and PoliticsDescription:St. Thomas Aquinas famously teaches that God's existence and essence are identical. This means that the way God exists perfectly corresponds to who and what God is. Creatures are not like this. Our existence is a struggle in which we must endeavor to find ourselves, become ourselves, and be true to ourselves. This struggle is made much harder by the fact that everything with which we seek to establish our identities comes to us through a violent world. Race, gender, sexuality, language, religion, family, community, profession, even personality are born of a tangled web of historical relations that may wound and alienate us even as we seek to find ourselves in them. Theology offers some hope by inviting us to ask who we are in God's merciful eyes. Jesus's question for his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" is one that we might prayerfully address back to him with reference to ourselves. This would be a question not merely of fact but of calling. It would be an effort to understand who we are meant to become amid the chaos of this fallen world. Speaker Biography: Andrew Prevot is associate professor of theology at Boston College who writes and teaches at the intersection of spiritual, mystical, systematic, and liberation theologies; phenomenology; and continental philosophies of religion. Recent publications include, Thinking Prayer: Theology and Spirituality Amid the Crises of Modernity (University of Notre Dame Press, 2015) and “Ignacio Ellacuría and Enrique Dussel: On the Contributions of Phenomenology to Liberation Theology” which appeared in A Grammar of Justice: The Legacy of Ignacio Ellacuría, edited by. J. Matthew Ashley and Kevin Burke (Orbis, 2014). Prevot has a new book entitled Theology and Race: Black and Womanist Traditions in the United States (Brill, 2018) expected July 2018. He earned his B.A. from Colorado College and his Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame. + Cannon Chapel and CST 360<br>1531 Dickey Drive<br>Atlanta, GA 30322 Campus Events

He is the designer and instructor of a course on the psychology of thrill-seeking now offered by Emory University and Coursera as a MOOC (massive online open course). Canadian museum Science North has launched an exhibit on sensation-seeking that was informed by Carter’s work that is currently traveling in North America.  A graduate of Oxford College and Emory University, Carter received an MA and PhD in psychology from the University of Michigan.
