Our Faculty of Theology decided, as part of its strategic planning, to approach external advisers to gain a new perpective on the faculty’s programme and curriculum. 

To this end, a series of lectures by visiting professors on the implications of epistemological transformation for theology were presented. The professors represented disciplines apart from Theology and attracted an audience from fields other than Theology.
A topic that was put under the spotlight recently was “ A Critical Race Theory Discussion of Curriculum” by Prof. Dennis Francis, the Dean of our Faculty of Education. Academics from various disciplines attended Prof. Francis’s talk. 
Anybody is welcome to attend the lectures. The sessions are advertised on the calendar on our website.
