Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander approaches to theology: A first offering from the new School of Indigenous Studies

The School of Indigenous Studies is now accepting enrolments for its first academic unit, ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Approaches to Theology’, which will be offered on Monday nights in 2nd semester and taught by our own Dr Garry Deverell, a trawloolway man and Anglican priest.

The unit will introduce students to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander approaches to theology. After a consideration of methods commonly used by Indigenous theologians and a brief outline of the history of Indigenous-Colonial relations on this continent, sustained attention will be given to Indigenous approaches to spirituality, the divine, Christ, ritual and church, creation, justice and hope.

The unit may be taken as part of undergraduate and postgraduate studies. It may also be taken as a stand-alone unit or for audit. It will be offered both in person at Trinity College Theological School and online via Zoom.

Information about the subject, its content, and how to enrol can be found on the School of Indigenous Studies website: https://divinity.edu.au/sis/academic-offerings/ 

In addition, Dr Deverell will be offering two half-hour information sessions on what prospective students may expect from the subject via Zoom. These will occur on Monday, 27 June at 5pm and 7pm. Click the links below to register for either session.
