Call for papers | Uncommon goods: public theology and empire conference

The cooperative is hosting its first annual conference, gathering together scholars and the theologically curious to question and explore the place of public theology on colonised lands. The conference will frame these focus areas broadly and creatively, welcoming approaches that disturb boundaries and think with and beyond the public of public theology.

We invite paper proposals that address the theme “Public Theology and Empire” across a range of thought including traditional Christian and religious disciplines, and broader academic approaches such as criticial theories, sociology, and political philosophy.

Along with the main paper sessions, two specific sessions will run concurrently on political theology and public theology and art.
