Duke professor to deliver Jarvis Lecture

Duke University theology and black church studies professor Dr. J. Kameron Carter will speak at East Carolina University at 7 p.m. March 13 in Wright Auditorium.

Carter will discuss “Religion and the post-racial condition,” in the final presentation of the 2011-12 Voyages of Discovery Lecture Series, sponsored by the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences.

Carter’s research addresses Christian thought, particularly the person and work of Jesus Christ, and theological anthropology, the human being in Christian perspective. He is writing a book that examines ideological uses of Jesus in the modern invention of the human, or as he refers to the topic, “the cultural Jesus.” His work addresses the identity of Jesus in light of shifting global realities in the 21st century.

The Jarvis Lecture is co-sponsored by the ECU Religious Studies Program and Jarvis Memorial United Methodist Church. Lecturers selected by the ECU program do not necessarily reflect the theology of the Methodist church.

Complimentary tickets are available through the ECU Central Ticket Office at 252-328-4788 or 1-800-ECU-ARTS. Tickets also will be available at the door. Individuals requesting accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should call 252-737-1016 (voice/TTY) at least 48 hours prior to the event.

  1. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of
    the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both
    show the same results.

  2. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and
    I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice procedures and we
    are looking to swap solutions with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all
    is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so
    I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  4. You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how
    they believe. All the time go after your heart.
