Princeton Theological Seminary Graduate Student Conference March 7-8, 2013 Princeton, New Jersey
Sex—as a concept, identity, and practice—has been the target of sustained controversy in public and academic discussions involving religion, theology, politics, and society throughout history.
The ways we think and communicate about sex and gender both reveal and inform our assumptions about humanity, relationships, intimacy, embodiment, virtue and vice, sin and salvation, evil, violence, identity formation, family formation, and the salutary organization of societies.
The Koinonia Forum Graduate Student Conference, sponsored by Princeton Theological Seminary, is scheduled for March 7-8, 2013, with a keynote address by Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Associate Professor of Religion and core faculty in the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Wesleyan University.
The board of Koinonia Forum invites submissions of proposals for 20- minute conference presentations from emerging scholars whose research pertains to any aspect of this theme. We warmly welcome and encourage submissions from students of all disciplines and faith traditions, from scholars in history, religion, theology, Christian ethics, moral theology, biblical studies, practical theology, sociology, philosophy, law, classics, and the sciences, regarding the following topics:
church polity and politics
LGBTQ studies/queer theory
history of sexuality and religion
sex and sacred texts
Please submit proposals of 250-300 words via email by December 1, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org
