Call for Papers
Lutheran Historical Conference Biennial Meeting
October 11-13, 2012
Lutheran Theological Seminary of Philadelphia
“Choosing the Lutheran Narrative:
Commemorating, Remembering, Forgetting?”
Lutherans grapple with their history in a number of ways. At times, their past is lifted up and celebrated. Still other parts are simply remembered. Perhaps more disturbing, Lutherans also forget their history, sometimes through neglect and other times quite deliberately. This conference will explore these themes while also celebrating the life of Henry Melchior Muhlenberg.
Papers dealing with any aspect of this theme are welcome, as are topics outside of the theme!
Presenters will be given 20-25 minutes for their presentation, followed by a question
and answer session. Paper proposals should include a title, 250 word abstract, and brief biography.
Proposals and inquiries are due
April 16, 2012 and should be sent electronically to the Program Chair:
David E. Settje, Concordia University Chicago,
Presenters must be members of the Lutheran Historical Conference by October 2012. Presenters are responsible for covering conference fees and travel costs.
