I’ll be giving a talk tomorrow at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary titled Liberation theology in the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement?: assessing conscientization in an occupy movement. It will feature the book on which I served as lead editor, Theological Reflections on the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement(co-edited with Jonathan Tan, Palgrave, 2016). In this lecture, I’ll offer some of my assessments of the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement with a term drawn from the movement quoting Brazilian educator Paulo Freire – conscientization – and think about some ways forward for how to do reflections on the possibilities of liberation theology with regard to contemporary occupy movements. This is some new research on which I have been working, and I’m excited to share some of the initial fruits of this work in this lecture.
