THEO5966
Theology and Hong Kong Society

This course equips students with knowledge and skills in theologizing with an interdisciplinary horizon across a variety of aspects of everyday practical life in Hong Kong. It helps students to see how different sub-disciplines of theology can be critically integrated into a coordinated whole and in this way be relevant to the practical life in one's own context. Social and theological analysis are given equal emphasis, and how these two could be mutually and critically correlated will be demonstrated. Experts or/and experienced practitioners in different fields of practice will be invited to share with students their analyses of the respective public/current issues, while theological responses (philosophical, exegetical, historical, and practical) will be given by teachers from different sub-disciplines in theology. Around half of the lectures will be structured in the form of an interdisciplinary dialogue.
