Jared Gilbert: Liberation Theologies for Secular Society
Thursday 12 July, 2012
Jared Gilbert is a Master of Divinity candidate (2012) at Yale Divinity School, where he is the current student body president and the former co-chair of the LGBTQ Coalition. Jared's interest in theologies of liberation comes out of his own experiences and study of repressive and emancipatory theologies of sexuality, and his studies in womanist theology with Emilie Townes. He recently traveled to Dares Salaam, Tanzania, to explore liberation theologies and social change through participatory theater and is currently researching and writing a practical liberationist ecclesiology. He is preparing for urban ministry in Brooklyn as a pastor with the United Church of Christ.
