Department of Anthropology pres.

The Michigan Anthropology Colloquia Series: "Copts and Christian-Muslim Mediation: The Social Life of Theology in Egypt"

Angie Heo. Assistant Professor, Anthropology and Sociology of Religion, University of Chicago, Divinity School and the College

"For Egypt's Coptic Orthodox, image theology is central to mediating human-divine relations. From the Arab uprisings to Sisi's military coup, varying theologies of material imagination have enabled communal critique and minoritarian identification. This talk navigates the social life of theology to understand how visual images organize relations between Christians and Muslims toward national and sectarian ends. In doing so, it considers the communicative aesthetics of religion and the creative making of religious difference within the terms of national unity."
