  • Jim Kenney
Where should we start? Iran, Iraq, Syria, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Turkey, and Egypt? Of course. But we’ll also visit many other nations, ranging from the volatile to the very promising.

  • Maurice Pickard
Week One: Understanding the rights of the LGBT community entails the erosion of prejudice but erosion is a slow process. Arguably no other social minority has made as much legal progress in such a short time  but this story is far from over.

Week Two: Are we ready to change the human genome and what will that mean in areas of decision-making and parenthood. Do you want a “designer baby” just when we are beginning to understand and even to celebrate diversity?

  • Pauline Viviano
Paul of Tarsus was a controversial character in his own day and remains so today. He is acknowledged by some as the greatest Christian theologian, but for others he is to be condemned for distorting the gospel. We will consider whether Paul's theology continues to have meaning for us today?

  • Ahmad Sadri
This lecture will explore a seven-hundred-year-old satirical poem, which Ahmad translated in Iran in the summer of 2014. Despite its playful surface, this fable offers a unique philosophical anthropology and political philosophy that is a profound reflection of the chaotic times of the poet. Its themes are powerfully relevant to human culture regardless of time and place, perhaps especially to our own troubled period.
