Welcome

Theological Ephemera is Keanu Heydari’s dedicated space to write about issues of theological, ecclesiastical, and cultural importance. View his main blog on his website here.

Keanu is interested in the broader currents of modern European intellectual history, especially the contributions of Michel Foucault (power-knowledge and critical discourse studies), Jacques Lacan (psychoanalysis), Jean-François Lyotard (postmodern conceptions of justice), and Étienne Balibar (critique of “equaliberty,” liberalism, and the nation-state).

He has had opportunities to be immersed in critical New Testament studies and the history of theology. He reads broadly in the field of New Testament studies and is finding a home in the “apocalyptic turn,” particularly in the work of Martinus C. de Boer, Beverly Roberts Gaventa, and Douglas A Campbell.
