Rethinking Theology in the Anthropocene

International Online Conference
July 15-17, 2021

The international conference „Rethinking Theology in the Anthropocene“ provides a learning space for theological reflection on the Earth’s new epoch, the Anthropocene, where human activity becomes a crucial geological factor, specifically affecting the climate and the ecosystem, and making the risk of an ecological collapse more and more threatening.

The Anthropocene does not constitute an ethical challenge alone. Rather, it calls for a radical revision of hegemonic notions of the human being and its relation to the more-than-human world. Human exceptionalism and anthropocentrism are undergoing severe scrutiny. What can theology contribute to this critical process?
