To thank our subscribers for your commitment to our site, we are launching an exciting new feature: Beginning Monday, September 17, subscribers will have access to exclusive content created just for you.
As all visitors to our site know, our blogs, videos and interviews provide timely, insightful commentary informed by the biggest idea to hit the behavioral sciences in the last fifty years, the mimetic theory of René Girard. We know that our subscribers are committed to seeking new and better ways to resolve conflict, bridge the partisan divide, and create sustainable peace. So we are excited to be offering subscribers these exclusive extras: interviews with international experts applying mimetic theory to help us navigate the scandals, partisanship, violence and scapegoating that trouble our world today.
Subscribers will be able to join the interviews live and have unlimited access to the recordings. Beginning next week on our Subscriber Extras page you will find these interviews:
Truth, Lies, and Political Scapegoating: an introduction to mimetic theory with Hanna Makela
Voting Christian Values with Brian McLaren
Am I a Racist? with Melvin Bray
Disgust, Outrage and Donald Trump with Martie Reineke
God in the Koran: a discussion with Jack Miles about his upcoming book
Belonging and Identity in the Age of Trump with James Alison
The next live interview is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 19 with James Alison, Catholic priest and theologian, to discuss the clergy abuse scandal and Pope Francis’ response.
