Jeremy Begbie, Thomas A. Langford Research Professor of Theology at Duke Divinity School, will be speaking at the new Camp House on Thursday, January 29 at 8pm as part of UTC's LeRoy Martin Distinguished Lecture Series in partnership with Theology on Tap of Chattanooga. We are expecting a large crowd, so please register for your free ticket to this event at the Camp House.
Below is the title and abstract of his presentation.
"The Sound of Freedom: The Music of Liberation"
"In this multimedia lecture, Jeremy Begbie will argue that pictures of freedom in modernity have been plagued by competitive, 'zero-sum' models--God's freedom and the world's are portrayed as mutually exclusive. This depends on basically visual ways of thinking about space. By contrast, two simultaneously sounding musical notes do not occupy bounded locations in our aural space, but interpenetrate, while remaining audibly distinct. Using performed and recorded music, Begbie will show that our sense of hearing can help us radically re-conceive and re-articulate a theology of freedom."
