Philosophy and religion colloquium is Oct. 26

Arthur Walker-Jones, associate professor of Biblical studies, University of Winnipeg, will present “Then the Trees of the Forest Shall Sing for Joy”: The Bible and the Global Environmental Crisis," at the Philosophy and Religion colloquium at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, in 300 Merrifield Hall.

The global environmental crisis is an ethical crisis for Western culture and Christianity is at least partially to blame. Early treatments of biblical interpretation tended to be apologetic and superficial, often focusing on the interpretation of “dominion.” A deeper analysis of the problem is necessary before moving to the possibility of recovering biblical resources for an ecological spirituality. Many environmentalists criticize the anthropocentrism of the biblical tradition. Ecofeminists point to the dualities in Western thinking that legitimate exploitation of women and the environment. In the Earth Bible series, an international group of scholars developed a series of hermeneutical principles for reading the Bible from the perspective of Earth. Just as feminist theologians have been suspicious of male metaphors for God, and sought to recover feminine or genderless images for God, ecotheologians need to recover non-human images for God. The Book of Psalms is the largest single source of language and images for Jewish and Christian prayers, hymns, and thus spirituality. This talk surveys some of the recurring narratives and metaphors from the Book of Psalms that might be harmful or beneficial from the perspective of Earth.

For a complete schedule of the Philosophy and Religion colloquium visit: http://www.und.edu/dept/philrel/colloquium.htm or, for more information regarding this lecture, contact Jack Weinstein at jack.weinstein@und.nodak.edu, 777-2887.

Monologues seek talent, award nominees

The Worldwide Campaign of the Vagina Monologues strives to empower women to find their collective voices and demand an end to the epidemic levels of violence and abuse in their communities around the world. The commitment and enthusiasm of local groups and volunteers in the Grand Forks area, who do essential work to raise the profile and break the silence about violence against women and girls has ensured the success of the Vagina Monologues as a production in our community.

Auditions for the Vagina Monologues will be Tuesday, Nov. 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Loading Dock, Memorial Union. This audition process is open to the community and the campus. If you cannot participate on that date, private auditions may be considered prior to Nov. 7.

We are adding several new pieces this year to include "Under the Burqa," a monologue about the oppression of Afghani women during the rule of the Taliban. We have many soldiers in Afghanistan now, so this will be an interesting tie to our community.

Other needs for this production (show dates Feb. 2 and 3) are the following: director, musical talent for pre-show and intermission as well as vocal actress for the introduction, back stage managers and other volunteers.

Community nominations will be accepted for "the Vagina Award." Being a Vagina Warrior “means developing the spiritual muscle to enter and survive the grief that violence brings and, in that dangerous space of stunned unknowing, inviting the deeper wisdom.” Please send your contact information, your nominee (male or female, business or organization), and a page description of why this person should be awarded this prestigious community recognition for their work to Shelle Michaels. VW Honors went to Linda Walker, Kristi Hall-Jiran, Kathy Coudle King and Kay Mendick in 2006.

The Vagina Monologues will be produced by Shelle Michaels at the Empire Art Center in Grand Forks to benefit the Community Violence Intervention Center. Please contact me.
