Bye-Bye Apocalypse: political theology for after the ends of worlds Online Zoom Webinar 20 November 2020 2 – 4 pm with Dr Janice McRandal SCD

Our current pandemic has not ushered in an unprecedented wave of apocalyptic discourse but reframed the material conditions under view. And yet the trajectory set by such scholars as Barth, Kassemann, Metz, Moltmann, Altizer – to name a few – has deployed the apocalyptic motif as a concept of immanent hope. In this paper, Dr Janice McRandal will suggest that such readings not only fail under their own interrogation of cosmic disorder, but also that these readings re-present the kingdom of God in terms of violent mimicry. By moving toward an account of apocalyptic as the end of history indeed, she will posit a political theology beyond the apocalypse, a theology for after the ends of such worlds. https://scd.edu.au/events/bye-bye-apocalypse-political-theology-for-after-the-ends-of-worlds/
