Description

Theologising Brexit: A Liberationist and Postcolonial Critique

Free Talk and Discussion in the St Bride's Public Theology Lecture Series.

Anthony Reddie analyses the theological challenge presented by the new post-Brexit epoch.

The referendum vote for Britain to leave the European Union has led to a seismic shift in the ways in which parts of the British population view and judge their compatriots. The subsequent rise in the reported number of racially motivated incidents and the climate of vilification and negativity directed at anyone not viewed as `authentically' British should be a matter of concern for all people.

What does it mean to be British and how can and should churches in Britain and the Christian faith espond to a rising tide of White English nationalism?

This critique is offered via the means of a prophetic, postcolonial model of Black theology that challenges the incipient sense of White entitlement and parochial `nativism' that pervaded much of the referendum debate.

Professor Anthony G. Reddie is a participative educator and liberation theologian who specialises in undertaking action-research and participative observational work with predominantly poorer Black communities in the UK. The author of 17 books, numerous journal articles and editor of Black Theology: An International Journal, Professor Reddie is renowned for his innovative and engaging teaching and facilitating style. He is one of the foremost Practical Black theologians in the world. In 2015 Professor Reddie was appointed Professor Extraordinarius in the Department of Philosophy, Practical and Systemic Theology at the University of South Africa.
