“The times they are a-changing,” but we are still quoting an old white male to describe the situation. The Midwest has long been thought of as pretty monolithic: all white, all farms, all “average,” all cold, and flat. The borders of other US regions seem to be easier to define, but the Midwest has often been white-washed by too-easy defininitions of who lives there and what life is like.

From its flawed notion of “separate but equal” to the rampant violence against black bodies throughout the twentieth century, the United States faced a clear racial divide perpetuated by its Jim Crow culture and the disenfranchisement of blacks. In response, on August 28, 1963, noted American civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, urging radical social and political change in a society marred by a rich history of segregation and discrimination.

Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now -- application deadline

Michigan, United States
Subject Fields: 
African American History / Studies, American History / Studies, Ethnic History / Studies, Race Studies, Religious Studies and Theology

Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now addresses a fundamental dilemma of Christianity: how to represent God's Son. This is particularly important in the twenty-first century. Issues of race, gender, and sexuality animate debates in church, state, and society. Considerations of bodies and body images dominate personal lives. And new technologies allow for the creation and distribution of images as never before. How we "see" Jesus Christ plays a vital role in how we see ourselves, our communities, our churches, our nations, and our societies.
