One of our friends and long-time Denters, Everett Harper once said that Dent is unique because Denters are“generous with their curiosity.” In this spirit, we are so excited to announce that Matthew Croasmun and Evan Rosa from The Yale Center for Faith and Culture will be speaking at Dent 2020. They’ll be speaking about “Living a Life Worthy of Your Humanity” and bringing curiosity to life’s biggest questions. Apply for Dent now.
Matthew Croasmun and Evan Rosa are taking a broad, humanistic, cross-cultural view of faith, culture, and the big questions.
Matthew runs a program for Yale Undergraduates called Life Worth Living, wherein students learn about—and interrogate their values—about what makes a good life. “The program I direct,” he says, “leads students into profound inter-religious encounters as they interact with visions of the good life from Buddhism to Islam to Utilitarianism to Nietzsche.” He makes a dent in the universe by helping “people ask and answer the big questions of life across important and enduring lines of difference.”
Evan works at the intersection of academic research and public engagement. His work includes founding and producing The Table, “an online journal and podcast exploring diverse Christian perspectives on life’s big questions.” On the introduction to his podcast, he says:
“My job will be to bring together wise voices, and learn with you, about topics like the meaning of love in today’s political context, how to be humble, what it means to be human in modern technological society, how to live through and respond to deep personal suffering, and so much more.”
These are the kinds of big questions we want you to bring to Dent 2020—so we can learn together with generosity, curiosity, and humility. Evan and Matthew will help lead us through the big questions; we can’t wait. Apply for Dent 2020 now.
