Survey: Human-AI culture

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019

A Doctor of Ministry student is conducting a research survey on a potentially mixed culture between humans and humanoid-AI robots (human-AI culture).

This survey is fun to join since there is no right or wrong answer, and it only takes two minutes to fill out. Your imagination will not only be helpful for this research, but will also take you on an adventure into the new world of humanity blended with AI technology and cyborgs in the next few decades.

If you have any questions, please contact Hoa Huu Nguyen at hnguyen07@georgefox.edu.

Come to ‘Rethinking Azusa: If It Wasn’t for the Women’ lecture tonight

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

The William Penn Honors Program invites the public to a free lecture, “Rethinking Azusa: If It Wasn’t for the Women,” presented by professor and author Keri Day, tonight (Thursday) at 7:30 p.m. in Hoover 105.

Day, an associate professor of constructive theology and African American religion at Princeton Theological Seminary, will present a moving examination of the Azusa Street Revival of 1906 to 1915 and powerfully weave her talk into the contemporary concerns of today.

Day’s teaching and research interests are in womanist/feminist theologies, social critical theory, cultural studies, economics, and Afro-Pentecostalism. She is the author of Unfinished Business: Black Women, The Black Church, and the Struggle to Thrive in America (2012) and Religious Resistance to Neoliberalism: Womanist and Black Feminist Perspectives (2015).

She is at work on her third book manuscript, which explores how early Pentecostalism contributes to the religious and democratic imagination. In 2017, she was recognized by ABC News as one of six black women at the “center of gravity” in theological education in America.
