Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
This year, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) will host a project titled, “A Public Church Engaging Science for Public Good.” This project will allow LSTC’s Zygon Center for Religion and Science to integrate science and scientists into seminary-wide conversations on pressing matters of public concern, including:
- a major lecture on the role of race in scientific guilds and epistemologies;
- an expert panel discussing lessons learned through the COVID-19 pandemic regarding the interaction of religion and science; and
- a conference on the intersecting roles of religion and science in producing, understanding, and dismantling racism.
