"Exploitation, Consumerism, and Eco-Justice"
"Exploitation, Consumerism, and Eco-Justice" by Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Ph.D.
Globalism, colonialism, and consumerism have caused unjust suffering (han) for the earth's exploited peoples and the exploited lands. To reverse this tragedy, we need to work for a just, sustainable planet, to imagine new models of development and to rediscover the inner resources needed to empower and sustain our spirits.
Dr. Kim's lecture grows out of her upcoming book, Colonialism, Han and the Transformative Spirit.
Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim is Associate Prof. of Doctrinal Theology at Moravian Theological Seminary and Director of the MATS Program. Her teaching and research centers on giving a voice to the marginalized and those on the underside of history.Dr. Kim's theological interests include Feminist Theology and Asian Theology.
