Populism in Today’s Theology & Politics

Trump+Pope

*Limited seating for lunch presentation—RSVP required by March 11 to cwcit@depaul.edu

 

Taking into account historical precedents, CWCIT visiting scholar, Emilce Cuda, examines the link between contemporary theology and politics from the perspective of the new style of democracy known as populism. She explores questions such as the following:

 

 

  • Will secularism continue to be characteristic of Western politics?
  • Who decides what is true in today’s world?
  • What is considered sacred?
  • Is “corruption” the new word for “profanation”?

About the Speaker
From Buenos Aires, Emilce Cuda specializes in political theology and teaches at several universities in the Buenos Aires area, including the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina. She is also a consultant to CELAM, the Latin American Bishops’ Conference, and her latest book (in Spanish) is Reading Francis: Theology, Ethics, and Politics.
