Introduction to Christian Anarchism
This course will be taught live on Zoom on Saturdays 1-2:30 p.m. Central Time from May 28 to June 25. The five sessions will center on these themes: 1. basics of Christian anarchism, 2. Christian anarchism confronts the state, 3. the strategy of non-violence, 4. praxis 1: selected history of utopian Christian communities 5. praxis 2: Catholic Worker vs. the church. Students will receive a link to readings they can do ahead of class if they want to, but reading is not required. Some of the authors featured will be Peter Chelčický, Leo Tolstoy, Jacques Ellul, Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day, William T. Cavanaugh, Eugene McCarraher, Nicolas Berdyaev, and selections from the Bible. Dr. Johnson will lecture for 45 minutes to an hour and leave at least a half hour for questions and discussion from participants. Participants can chat throughout and will also have the option to join a Slack group for further discussion with each other. Students who cannot make the live sessions will be provided access to recordings to watch at their leisure.
