Trinity College, 100 Royal Parade, Parkville

In an age marked by terrorism, much focus is placed on the efforts of police, military and intelligence to prevent or counter violence. But what role is there for love in an age marked by extremist violence? What is erotic love? What is agapeic love? What is ‘romantic’ love? And how can love be understood within a theological anthropology, using René Girard’s mimetic theory? This lecture, ‘Love in a Time of Terror’, will be given by Dr James Alison, a leading theologian and one of the premier authorities on the thought of French-Catholic philosopher, René Girard.

Cost: Free.
