"It is not an easy task to introduce considerations of justic into every sexual relation...But if sexuality is to be creative and not destructive, then there is no substitute for discerning ever more carefully whether our expressions of it are just."
Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics
Professor Margaret A. Farley will discuss her recent book, Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics which proposes a framework for sexual ethics whereby justice is the criterion for all loving, including love that is related to sexual activity and relationships.
She is the author or co-editor of seven books and hundreds of articles and book chapters and is the recipient of a variety of fellowships and awards, including the 2008 Grawemeyer Award in Religion for her book, Just Love.
Professor Farley was a founding member of Yale-New Haven Hospital's Bioethics Committee and served for eight years as co-director of the Yale University Interdisciplinary Bioethics Center. She is currently co-director of the All-Africa Conference: Sister to Sister, which facilitates responses to HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
