Gary J. Dorrien
This course examines the recent history of U.S. American social ethics as an academic discipline, a form of public discourse, and an ecumenical tradition. It begins with the eruption of liberation theologies in the late 1960s, explores the relationships between liberation ethics and previous theories and movements, examines conservative critiques of these traditions, and emphasizes recent work concerning economics, militarism, ecology, cultural difference, human rights, and racial and sexual justice.
