Dialogue with Jonathan L. Walton
Professor of Religion and Society,
Harvard Divinity School
"Ethics and Consumerism"
Location: Latham & Watkins, 330 N. Wabash, Suite 2800, Chicago
Date: October 5, 2017, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Professor Walton is a social ethicist and scholar of American religions. His research addresses the intersections of religion, politics, and media culture. Drawing on British cultural studies, Walton explores the interrelationship between the media used by Christian evangelists and the theologies thereby conveyed. He argues for forms of theological innovation within the productions of religious broadcasting that are enabled—perhaps even generated—by the media that evangelists use, and he asks what the implications are for the study of evangelical Christianity when one attends to these particular forms of religious and theological performance.
Jonathan joined the faculty of Harvard Divinity School in July 2010 and was appointed Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church beginning July 2012. Formerly an assistant professor of religious studies at the University of California, Riverside, Walton earned his PhD in religion and society from Princeton Theological Seminary. He also holds a master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary as well as a BA in political science from Morehouse College in Atlanta.
