Jane Shaw to Deliver Annand Lecture

March 10, 2023
English scholar, priest, and social activist Jane Shaw will return to YDS and Berkeley on April 4, 5:30 p.m. to deliver the inaugural Annand Lecture: Mysticism and Social Justice.” The lecture in Niebuhr Hall is sponsored by YDS in association with Berkeley Divinity School’s Annand Program for Spiritual Formation, named in honor of Berkeley’s tenth dean, James E Annand, which provides spiritual formation and direction for all YDS students. Shaw has spoken at Berkeley on two previous occasions, as Cheney Lecturer in 2016 and as guest speaker in 2019 at “In the Spirit’s Tether: A Centenary Celebration of William Palmer Ladd and Pearcy Dearmer at Berkeley.” Prior to her current position at Oxford, Shaw was Dean for Religious Life at Stanford University.
The lecture, which will be recorded, will be followed by a reception in the Sarah Smith Gallery.
