Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium

Nineteenth Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium, Graduate Student Symposium

Assembling Futures: Economy, Ecology, Democracy.

The conversations for the 19th Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium will be centered around the theme: Assembling Futures: Economy, Ecology, Democracy.

What is the relationship of religion to economy, ecology, and democracy? In our fraught moment, what critical questions about democratic processes, ecosystems, and economic structures are in need of (dis)assembly? What possible futures might emerge from transdisciplinary work across these traditionally siloed scholarly areas of interest? By bringing together scholars in religious, theological, and biblical studies, this 19th Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium seeks to activate perspectives urgently needed in assembling possible futures.

Participants: J. Kameron Carter, Gary Dorrien, Paulina Ochoa Espejo, Marion Grau, Catherine Keller, Hyo-Dong Lee, Kathryn Lofton, Marcia Pally, Jennifer Quigley, Joerg Rieger, Devin Singh, Kathryn Tanner.

The Drew University Graduate Division of Religion is pleased to announce that the 19th Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium will be held in a virtual format in response to the continued presence of COVID-19.

Kenneth Ngwa and Chris Boesel serving as faculty respondents. This will be followed with a Q&A session amongst the attendees.

On November 9 from 4-6pm EST, we will host a small panel with some of the Invited Speakers from the conference. They will also share a brief summary of their papers followed by a Q&A session.
