Each year, Nashotah House’s graduating senior class ‘nominates’ a desired commencement speaker and this year’s nomination has accepted. Nashotah House Theological Seminary is pleased to announce Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics of Duke Divinity School, as Nashotah House’s Commencement speaker . This year’s commencement will be held on May 24th, 2012.
Looking ahead to the May 24 event, Nashotah House Academic Dean, Dr. Garwood Anderson comments, “Few contemporary theologians have have borne the sort of influence that Hauerwas has. Most of us have read much from his work; many of us have been profoundly influenced by him; and probably not a few of us have opinions about his work and views, probably strong opinions — because those are the sort Hauerwas expresses and elicits. So it will be a real honor to have him among us this spring, and it will cap off what will have been a rather extraordinary year for distinguished visitors to the Nashotah House campus.”
