Article Published by Religion News Service


I was pleasantly surprised to learn that RNS (Religion News Service) has just picked up the article I’d originally written for the University of Chicago’s Sightings nearer to the beginning of this Coronatide season. In this piece, I tried to push back in a critical yet light-hearted way against some “hot takes” on how COVID-19 was radically transforming our experience of temporality. Those hot takes became something of a sub-genre in venues like the AtlanticNew Yorker for a few months earlier this year.

New Twitter Account for the American Cusanus Society

The American Cusanus Society now has a Twitter account! Check it out by clicking here. 

As Secretary, I’ll do my best to oversee the Twitter account in a way that does justice to the talents & achievements of the wide-ranging group of scholars making up our ACS membership.

At this point, my main goal is to build up a solid base of followers, so that we can keep folks informed not just about the state of Cusanus studies in general, but also about our exciting new series of lectures on beauty & truth in the Renaissance, hosted by the Lumen Christi Institute in Chicago.
