The fifth triennial conference sponsored by the History of Women Religious Conference will be held at Marquette University, June 17-20, 2001. This conference aims to explore the history of Women Religious by addressing questions, themes or issues which have shaped, and/or continue to influence, the historical evolution of religious congregations. Sessions might focus on encouraging vocations, education, foundation, community governance, changing ministries, ethnic, linguistic or racial tensions, demographic composition, relations with clergy and hierarchy, spiritual tradition, or emerging models of religious life.
Papers which explore themes from anthropological, spiritual, sociological, historical, theological, cultural studies and material cultural perspectives are especially welcome.
Proposals for papers in the form of a one-page abstract accompanied by a one-page c.v. are requested by letter, email or fax (506-648-5799) by August 1, 2000. Panel proposals are encouraged but individual proposals are also acceptable. The language of the conference is English but proposals may be submitted in French.
