Description

You are invited to a free public lecture: Religion and Civil Society: Production, Exclusion, Resistance.

The University of Newcastle's Religion and Radicalism research network presents the Associate Professor Roland Boer.

Associate Professor Roland BoerAssociate Professor Boer enjoys stirring up debate with articles under such arresting titles as Lenin the Nudist, and believes a measure of provocation is a good thing if it stimulates thought and discussion about religion.

He is a widely read and internationally recognised academic theologian whose prolific writing has broadened dialogue not only in his speciality research field, Marxist interaction with religion, but across the spectrum of biblical criticism.

A researcher within the Religion and Radicalism research network, Associate Professor Boer describes himself – on his well-patronised blog Stalin's Moustache – as someone who likes "speaking my mind" and basks in one reviewer's assessment of his sentiments as "the oddest I have ever read in a scholarly work."  

All welcome. You don't need to RSVP.
