History of Christianity Section and Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Group and Practical Theology Group and Transformative Scholarship and Pedagogy Group

Call for Papers: 

This panel takes its starting point from the just-published third volume on theological education in North America by historian Glenn Miller. The volume, Piety and Plurality (Cascade Press, 2014), covers the tumultuous period between 1960 and today. The previous volumes, which Dr. Miller has been at work on since the 1970s, are Piety and Intellect (the Colonial era up to the Civil War) and Piety and Profession (1870-1970). We welcome papers engaging ways to understand both the diversification of places of theological education and the multiplication of theologies and pedagogies employed in order to reshape the landscape of North American theological education in its broadest sense. We are especially interested in theological education at the popular level, including Bible Institutes, but also base communities, and independent networks and institutes. Of special interest are educational developments within Pentecostal and Latino/a theological traditions, and mega-church-based models of theological education. We also seek examples of theological education rooted in transformative pedagogies, experiential learning, or other alternative models for theological education.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
