2022 Updates!

1 Dec

Eager to dig back into some texts? Good news, the Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Reading Group (with a slightly changed format) will be returning in January. We will (for the sake of my schedule and sanity) be moving to a monthly, rather than a weekly format, the 2nd Tuesday of the month, 8:00-10:00pm. Whether we meet in person at Yinz (formerly Crazy Mocha), or online (zoom), will depend on the state of things pandemic-wise (so get those boosters!). I am tentatively considering working though David Graeber and David Wengrow’s The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity through the winter/spring. But, if you have a different direction you would like to see the group go, feel free to comment on this post on wordpress or facebook.

Since we last met, I (Justin) have been busy working on a not-too-dissimilar project. If you are interested in undertaking conversations similar to those we have held here in the past, but with a more a-theological bent; be sure to check out The Radical Theology Seminar, which will also be launching in January. There you can not only discuss key texts in “radical theology” (Death of God theology, secular theology, deconstructive theology, and related schools of thought), much like we have often done at PCPN, but, you will also have direct access to some of the top scholars in the field, who will present accessible mini-lectures and lead seminar style discussions each month.

Radical Theology is a transgressive theology capable of disrupting religious, racial, class, and gender boundaries with the aim of social, political, and religious transfiguration. 

The Radical Theology Seminar offers a unique opportunity for those interested in the cutting-edge of theological discourse, to engage with some of the most important contemporary thinkers in radical theology in academically rigorous monthly seminars. Participants can receive personalized attention and directly interact with some of the most respected names in radical theology, explore seminal texts in the field, while pressing its boundaries in new and exciting directions.

This seminar is for those dissatisfied with dominant theological traditions, incapable of speaking into our complex political, ecological, and cultural situation, and for religious misfits of every stripe interested in the collaborative construction of insurrectionary theology for the twenty-first century.
