Two podcast interviews

Fans of nasal mumbling will be thrilled to learn that this week I am featured on not one, but two podcasts: the Political Theology Network’s Assembly, where I discuss Carl Schmitt with Amaryah Armstrong and Zac Settle, and Grad School Vonnegut, where I discuss Kurt Vonnegut’s first published short story, “Report on the Barnstrom Effect” (and HBO’s Watchmen) with Gerry Canavan and Aaron Bady.

The Kingdom and the Garden exists!

I received my translator copies of Agamben’s The Kingdom and the Garden yesterday. You can order a copy here — in my view it is one of the most original of Agamben’s works since The Use of Bodies, of particular interest to students of theology.

New blog book event

Over at An und für sich, we are having a book event on Thomas Lynch’s Apocalyptic Political Theology. You can find the introductory post here, and you can follow the subsequent posts using either this tag or checking the schedule at the end of the introduction, which will be updated with links as each post appears.

Blog series “Reading the Qur’an” completed

My course “Reading the Qur’an” is finished for the semester, and so is the corresponding blog series. Below is an index of blog posts; you may also want to consult the syllabus.

I have now begun studying the Qur’an in Arabic, so keep an eye on the tag for some further extra-curricular reflections!
