Renowned liberation theologian Jung Mo Sung will be delivering a lecture on the “Liberation Theology and the Myths of Capitalism” at 4pm on Friday, September 22 in PSR’s Badè Museum (1798 Scenic Ave, Berkeley, CA).
Known for his innovative approach to Latin American liberation theology, Sung has been a leading voice in theological discussions about economic justice, consumerism, and the discourse that sustains our current global economy. Sung’s lecture at PSR will explore his recent research in changes in the nature of the “mythic structure” that sustains and supports capitalism.
A Korean-born Brazilian Roman Catholic, Sung is professor at the Graduate Program in Religious Studies at the Methodist University of São Paulo, Brazil. He is the author of numerous books and articles including Desire, Market and Religion (SCM Press, 2007), The Subject, Capitalism, and Religion (Palgrave, 2011), and Beyond the Spirit of Empire (SCM Press, 2009), co-authored with Néstor Míguez and Joerg Rieger.
