The Shape of Family: Love, Belonging, and COVID-19 from Regent Audio on Vimeo.

 

Lecture Description: Our culture, including evangelical church culture, often pays more attention to the nuclear family than to other forms of relationships. In the age of COVID-19, attentiveness to the family circle has intensified as households mark out safe boundaries for connection. Yet many others remain outside and disconnected. This lecture will turn to history to probe the shape of past families and explore historical experiences of love and belonging. It will propose hopeful and healing ways through which we can choose to retrace the lines that connect and separate us all.

Cindy Aalders is Director of the John Richard Allison Library and Assistant Professor of the History of Christianity at Regent College. Her doctoral studies at the University of Oxford focused on the spiritual lives and manuscript cultures of eighteenth-century British women. In addition to numerous journal articles and book chapters, she is the author of To Express the Ineffable: The Hymns and Spirituality of Anne Steele. Her current research explores the religious lives of eighteenth-century children.
