26/01 – Pros and cons of the current role of Latin American Theology
In the first part we will talk about the great contributions that liberation theology (LT) has made, both in the processes of emancipation, resistance and struggle in Latin America, as well as in the popular Christian communities. The emergence of LT meant in its time the irruption of the liberating paradigm, both in Christianity in general and in theology in particular. It was an epochal event. But it has rained a lot in these 50 years, so in the second part we will try to examine what new paradigms have burst also later, and in what they challenge LT, demanding to be attended, studied, confronted, in no case ignored by LT. We will evaluate if this theology is stagnant, repeating what it was 50 years ago, or if it is decisively confronted with the new challenges present in a society that already has little to do with that of the 70’s and 80’s of the last century, a society that lives in a state of a new axial time, that needs a LT also axial.

28/01 – LA TEOLOGÍA Y LA CRISIS GLOBAL PROVOCADA POR EL COVID-19
La pandemia de Covid-19 que ha afectado el mundo en 2020 cambió radicalmente el contexto de la vida de las personas, de las sociedades y el panorama mundial y revela una crisis global: sanitaria, ecologica, politica, economica, espiritual. Millones de personas fueran infectadas, más de un millón ya han perdido la vida, en cuanto países como EUA, Brasil, Italia, Francia, Reino Unido están en la punta de las mayores tragedias. En el Norte, a pesar de recursos para manejar la crisis sanitaria, se revela una crisis social y cultural amplia. En Brasil, movimientos sociales y asociativos, como también comunidades indígenas y de los pueblos tradicionales, fueran fundamentales para providenciar alimentos, material de protección e incluso agua potable. La propuesta de esta live pretende abrir espacio en el FTL para articular perspectivas del Norte (America del Norte) y del Sur (Brasil) y abrir el diálogo con las nuevas narrativas que emergen de comunidades populares, pueblos originarios, quilombolas (cimarrones) y otras. Tratase de escuchar cómo esas comunidades enfrentan colectivamente las consecuencias de la pandemia y encuentran nuevos caminos que garantizan la vida y la dignidad humana y del medio ambiente.
28/01/2021- Desmantelar las violencias e injusticias: conversaciones sobre religión, estudios de género y teologías feministas
Religious fundamentalisms have had a profound impact on societies in recent decades. This is evident in several fields, particularly in the context of institutional policy. Political parties, groups and leaders have assumed spaces of power decision in many countries using religion as a catalyst for loyalty and adherence to conservative and anti-democratic guidelines.
The proposed activity aims to discuss contemporary forms of religious fundamentalism and its impacts on the political and human rights fields, as well as to present and evidence counter-narratives that come from the religious field itself. The idea is to establish a dialogue on religion, gender studies and feminist theologies to denounce the ways in which fundamentalisms particularly affect women and LGBTQIA + people, but also to affirm the experiences of resistance and the construction of alternatives for other possible worlds.
