Digitization Project: E.T. Earl Lectures – The Fifties
Many of the E.T. Earl Lectures from the 1950s have been posted online by Special Collections and Archives at the Graduate Theological Union.
The Earl Lectures have been sponsored by Pacific School of Religion almost every year since 1902. In 1950, the lectures were first recorded on audio tape, when the event was also broadcast on the radio. Very few have heard any of these lectures since then.
The Graduate Theological Union is pleased to announce that Dr. Michelle Gonzalez Maldonado (Michelle A. Gonzalez), Professor of Religious Studies and Assistant Provost for Undergraduate Education at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, has been named the GTU’s 2015 Alumna of the Year. Dr. Gonzalez, whose teaching specializations include Latino/a, Latin American, and Feminist Theologies as well as Afro-Caribbean Studies, received her PhD in Systematic and Philosophical Theology from the GTU in 2001.
