Harvard Divinity School Alumni Relations, The HDS Alumni/Alumnae Council, and The Harvard Club of San Francisco invite you to join the celebration of the HDS Bicentennial year with the Harvard community in the Bay Area.
Divinity School professors have long taught ethics in the Yard. Beginning early in the 1880s, as HDS pioneered the analysis of "social problems" using the case method, Francis Peabody taught an undergraduate course on urban ills. Students called it "drainage, drunkenness, and divorce." Today teaching has to address other ethical anxieties. Despite claims of universal liberation, many of them have to do with sexuality and gender. What does it mean to teach sexual ethics at Harvard in the age of hook-up apps, fluid identities, and "affirmative consent"?
