Dr. Jeanine Thweatt-Bates to give Beck Lecture on Cyborg Spirituality

Dr. Jeanine Thweatt-Bates will be delivering this year's Beck Lecture on September 25 at 7:00 p.m. in Mossman 101. The Beck Lecture is designed to address topics on the intersection of science and religion. Author of the book, Cyborg Selves: A Theological Anthropology of the Posthuman, Thweatt-Bates will address the topic of what advances in technology, particularly those related to the field of artificial intelligence, means for a traditional understanding of human spirituality. Can cyborgs exhibit spirituality? Can they have genuine belief? These questions and more will be addressed in an exciting and interactive lecture experience.

Thweatt-Bates holds a Ph.D. in theology and science from Princeton Theological Seminary. She currently teaches at the College of New Jersey.
