Mark Jordan is the BU STH Spring 2019 Lowell Lecturer. Mark D. Jordan is R. R. Niebuhr Professor at Harvard Divinity School. He teaches courses on the Western traditions of Christian theology, the relations of religion to literature, and the prospects for sexual ethics. For the last three decades, he has written extensively on sexuality in the past and present of Christianity, but he has also continued to explore other topics at the boundaries of philosophy and Christian theology. His most recent books are Convulsing Bodies: Religion and Resistance in Foucault (Stanford 2015) and Teaching Bodies: Moral Formation in the Summa of Thomas Aquinas (Fordham 2016). He has finished a manuscript on teaching as part of series on the future of theological education. The title of the lecture is also the working title of a book in progress—which he swears will be his last.
