Hello to our GTUx Connect community!
Are you ready to jump into the conversation, but maybe don’t know where to start? We’ve created a sampling of our original offerings with teaser content to help you find your entry point. Whether you’re ready to sign up for all three GTUx offerings at once or want to go at your own pace, our GTUx platform allows you to learn at your own pace, from anywhere in the world.
The Spirit of Justice
This GTUx original offering asks: What happens when we seek radical love?
In an age marked by extremism and divisiveness, we offer The Spirit of Justice as a response to the widespread questions: “What is justice?” and “What is to be done?” Part intellectual and religious history, part call to action, in this GTUx Original, Dr. David Kyuman Kim serves as a guide to answering our most pressing questions about justice and public life.
This offering is best for those who know: “There is more for us in this world.”
In this offering, “A theology of the land beckons.”
Taught by Dr. Rita Sherma and Dr. Devin Zuber, this GTUx offering is perfect for those looking to understand connections between humans and the land through the lens of spirituality.
We will explore the varied ways in which the natural world, or the “other than human world,” has been imagined and experienced through embodied practices and creative acts throughout American history. The course will examine indigenous ways of knowing and understanding that situate the human integrally within the broader planetary community.
This offering is perfect for those looking to understand their place among the trees.
The Lure of Power
“The word ‘power’ evokes a spectrum of responses among people from diverse backgrounds.” If you’re interested in exploring this further, then this GTUx offering is for you.
The power of place, the power of art, the power of speech — these forces became spectacularly animated by forms of religiosity on January 6, 2021, as the nation watched an insurrection at the Capitol unfold that was fueled — in part — by white Christian Nationalism. In the aftermath of the event, religion has continued to be invoked by leaders across the political spectrum amidst calls for our national healing and reconciliation. In this 4-part GTUx series, led by GTU scholars from diverse disciplinary and religious backgrounds, we explore the complex entanglement of politics and religion on January 6th and thereafter.
This offering is great for those looking to better understand the blurred lines between civic and sacred.
