Join Western Theological Seminary as we continue the conversation about disability and ministry. In November, Lennard Davis helped us to think through how disability is an aspect of diversity while at the same time questioning the usefulness of the concept of diversity. This month, Sarah Barton, Ph.D. candidate Duke Divinity School and finalist for the Nouwen Fellow position at WTS, joins us to help us consider how the practice of baptism challenges us to think differently about disability and discipleship.
With the support of the Henry Luce Foundation, WTS has established a Nouwen Fellow program that brings scholars whose research focuses on some aspect of disability studies to join our faculty for a one or two year appointment.
