Senior Fellow Norman Wirzba on Community in the Divinity School

Our Fellows at the Kenan Institute of Ethics not only show incredible variety in their interests and specialities, but also reach a wide array of departments and schools within the university. Norman Wirzba, Kenan Senior Fellow and Gilbert T. Rowe Distinguished Professor of Christian Theology, pursues research and teaching interests at the intersections of theology, philosophy, ecology, and agrarian and environmental studies.  In the video above, he seeks to remove a degree of abstraction felt by many students in the world of theology. Wirzba, rather than talking at his students, aims to foster community in Duke’s Divinity School and beyond, believing that any seminary student can learn so much more alongside the rest of Duke’s incredible schools.
