Latinx Studies for a 21st Century Church: A Conference on Episcopal Cultures


Oct 11 - Oct 12
Campus of Seminary of the Southwest

Seminary of the Southwest and the Office of Latino Ministries present Latinx Studies for a 21st Century Church: A Conference on Episcopal Cultures, dedicated to scholarly discussion of Latinx Studies within and with reference to the Anglican/Episcopal context.

Join us in Austin this October as established and emerging scholars present research-based reflections on culture, ritual, the theo-politics of immigration, history, ecclesiology, congregational practice, critical race theory, and gender and sexuality. We note that while conversations about Latino practice within the Episcopal context abound, these remain on the anecdotal level. Existing opportunities for reflection and learning are often limited to traditional folkways, liturgical practices, introduction to institutional structures, and Spanish language proficiency. With this conference, we are looking to produce new research and new knowledge engaging the Latino Episcopal context. Select conference papers will be published in a related issue of the Anglican Theological Review.

Cost: $25

 

Publication Opportunity: Accepted conference papers are eligible for consideration for publication in a thematic issue of the Anglican Theological Review dedicated to this topic.

Financial Assistance: Financial assistance toward the cost of attendance is available. Please email latinostudies@ssw.edu and indicate your reason for needing assistance.
