Scholar News: Political Theology as Transformative Opposition

The Centre for Public and Contextual Theology Research Fellow Dr Steven Ogden has had a piece published on the Political Theology network titled "Political Theology as Transformative Opposition".

His forthcoming book is Violence, Entitlement, and Politics (Routledge, 2021), where he identifies entitlement as predominantly a masculine gender pattern, characterised by proprietorial thinking, which has personal and political implications. He previously published The Church, Authority, and Foucault (Routledge, 2017), which examines the use and abuse of power in the church through Foucault’s power/knowledge prism, focusing on epistemic hubris and the sanctification of obedience.

He is former principal of the St Francis Theological College Brisbane, and the Dean of St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral Adelaide.
