Call for Proposals for Theopoetics Conference

March 20-22, 2020 at the Chicago Theological Seminary.
A gathering for those whose interests live at — or near — the intersection of justice-seeking religious reflection with spirituality, imagination, the arts, and embodiment. 

The interplay of these areas with one another has come to be named as theopoetics, the focus of the event.

We hope to call together those for whom these topics are compelling, spur conversation, and encourage connections. This conference is a unique attempt to be a conference about theopoetics that is organized as theopoetics. A mix of voices, methods, and perspectives, each affirming the mutual influence that religious reflection, faith, imagination, the arts, and embodiment have upon one another. Participants have been clear that continuing events would be worthwhile and so here we are!

5 Ways in which you might schedule to contribute some of your own work at the conference:

1. Give a presentation, talk, or performance
2. Offer a skills-based workshop
3. Host and facilitate a dialogue through conversation or panel
4. Deliver a PechaKucha
5. Be an Artist-in-Residence

Info and application here.

Organized for theological scholars, religious practitioners, artists (of any sort and medium) and/or those who are all three, this conference will be a mix of academic discussions, facilitated dialogue, performance, and workshops focused on developing practices that can be taken back to share with our communities of support and accountability.

Proposals are due by the end of the day on Monday January 13th, 2020.
