For our tenth episode, the podcast welcomes Vincent J. Miller of the University of Dayton! Vince spoke with Stephen Okey at this past summer’s CTSA convention in Milwaukee, WI. They talked at length about Vince’s work on globalization and theology, with a particular focus on taking the virtue of solidarity as both a diagnostic lens and prescription for thinking about globalization. They also talked about how growing up in Pittsburgh during the implosion of the US steel industry has shaped Vince’s theology, the fragmentation and subtlety of zeitgeists, and Vince’s defense of “Kumbaya.”
Vincent J. Miller is the Gudorf Chair in Catholic Theology and Culture at the University of Dayton in Dayton, OH. He was previously an associate professor of theology at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in theology from the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of Consuming Religion: Christian Faith and Practice in a Consumer Culture (Continuum, 2005). He has written for numerous scholarly journals, including Theological Studies, Horizons, and Liturgical Ministry, as well as popular journals like America.
The Daily Theology Podcast was very fortunate this summer to record several conversations at the 70th annual convention of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA). This is the second of four such conversations, and we are grateful to the CTSA for making these possible.
