The 4th annual Fordham Graduate Theology Conference, held on May 2, aims to focus on the interplay between religion and resistance in historical contexts and contemporary conversations. The Theology Graduate Association invites papers from graduate students in theology, religious studies, and related fields whose research is primarily historical, biblical, systematic, ethical, or constructive. Particularly welcome are submissions that explore the interplay between concepts of the Divine and liberatory praxis; themes of resistance in religious texts; constructive projects in feminist, postcolonial, queer, ecological, or critical race discourses; resisting communities or individuals in ancient, medieval, or modern history; resistance and war; the relationship between academic work and the labor of building cultures of resistance; the experience of God in resistance; or others broadly related to the theme.
Abstracts of 300 words for 20-minute presentations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1. The conference will be on May 2, 2015, at Fordham’s Rose Hill Campus. Keynote speaker Mayra Rivera Rivera (Associate Professor of Theology and Latina/o Studies at Harvard Divinity School) will be presenting from her upcoming book, Poetics of the Flesh.
