Theology and Religious Studies Professor Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda has just published Resisting Structural Evil (Fortress Press, 2013). Moe-Lobeda, Wismer Professor of Gender and Diversity Studies, also teaches in Environmental Studies program and the School of Theology and Ministry.
In her book, Moe-Lobeda examines Christian ethics in light of the ecological crisis and relates ecojustice to economic justice. “The future of the earth is not simply a matter of protecting species and habitats,” she said. “The earth crisis cannot be understood apart from the larger human crisis—economic equity, racial equity, social values, and human purpose.” In his review of the book, noted American philosopher, academic, and activist Cornel West wrote, “This is a grand prophetic book motivated by love and focused on justice – social justice, ecological justice, and dignity for the ‘least of these.’” Moe-Lobeda will discuss her book at Seattle University's Search for Meaning Book Festival, March 9, at 2:15 p.m. in Pigott 104. Free tickets are available through brownpapertickets.com. Moe-Lobeda, who earned her Ph.D. from Union Theological Seminary, joined the faculty in 2004. Moe-Lobeda has lectured throughout the United States and in Africa, Asia, and Europe on climate justice, economic justice, environmental racism, eco-theology, and the role of religion in justice struggles. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Society of Christian Ethics. Among her many articles and books are Healing a Broken World: Globalization and God (Fortress Press, 2002) and Public Church: For the Life of the World(Lutheran Voices, 2004).
