Summer is coming to a close, and we here at ESR are in transition. Like all educational institutions, we are welcoming a new cohort of students - both residential and Access - and gearing up for another year of classes, seminars and events.
This summer was a rich and productive one for us. We had the opportunity to visit Yearly Meetings all over the country and touch base with Friends from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We were also able to host events here on the campus of Earlham School of Religion.
One event we were able to host this spring was the annual Willson Lectures. This year, our lecturer was Joerg Rieger. We invite you to enjoy the video series that we have produced from his lectures:
- 2011 Willson Lectures: Joerg Rieger -- Lecture One: "Empire and Economics: The Difference Christianity Makes"
- 2011 Willson Lectures: Joerg Rieger -- Lecture Two: "Empire and Resistance: Reshaping Desire from the Bottom Up"
- 2011 Willson Lectures: Joerg Rieger -- Lecture Three: "Christ and Empire: The Radical Christian Heritage"
