Sr. Teresa Forcades: a couple of speaking engagements

For those of you who keep tuning in for an update on Sr. Teresa Forcades, we can tell you that she appeared on a program on TV3 (in Catalan) called Bricolatge Emocional (approximately 4 minutes into the video). We can also give you a couple of upcoming speaking engagement dates:

November 11, 2010: Sr. Teresa will be participating in the Dialogue series organized by the ComissiĆ³ d’Actes Religiosos de les Festes Decennals for the Jubilee Year of the Mother of God of La Candela de Valls, 7:30 p.m., Casa de Cultura, Barcelona. She will be interviewed by the editor of Foc Nou, Jordi Listeri, about the challenges facing the Church today.

November 15, 2010: Cines Alexandra, Barcelona (Spain), 7:30 p.m. Sr. Teresa will be speaking in conjunction with the screening of "Vision", a new film about Hildegard von Bingen that has received excellent critical reviews. The presentation is part of a series "Muestra de Cine Espiritual" and the rest of the series looks pretty good as well so, if you live in that area, click here for more information.

January 11, 2011: Sr. Teresa will be one of the guest lecturers in a class at the University of Cordoba (Spain) this semester. The class is on "Religion, Humanism and Culture: The Memory of Europe in a Global World. The Turn of the Millenium, Democracy and Postmodernity." Anyway, Sr. Teresa will be speaking at 7 p.m. on "Universality as an ethical benchmark: The materialist theology of Alain Badiou and Slavoj Zizek." Are you an average lay person who has never heard of these two philosophers? We hadn't either. That's why the names are hyperlinked to their Wikipedia pages!
