Theme: “Memories of the Azusa Revival: Interrogations and Interpretations”
The conference seeks to explore various issues related to the Azusa Revival. What is the history of the memories of the Revival? In what ways and in what circumstances have contested memories become sites of ideological struggles, subverting or surmounting hegemonic constructions of the Pentecostal past? What are the memories of the social and political repercussions of the Revival in various countries? How do gender, racial, and global perspectives inform the interpretation of the memories of the Revival? How and why have previously marginalized memories of the Revival entered conceptions of the Pentecostal past at different historical moments? How are interpretations of the memories of the Azusa Revival informed by theories of revivalism, social movements, and cultural theory and do the interpretations of the Revival produce new theorizing.
The theme of this conference aims to deepen the discourse about the memories of the Azusa Revival and advance the discussion the role of the Revival in the construction of Pentecostalism as a religious movement.
