Current Conference

The Drew University Graduate Division of Religion is pleased to announce its 19th Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium to be held on March 14th and 15th, and corresponding Graduate Student Symposium on March 13th, 2020. The conversations will be centered around our conference theme: Assembling Futures: Economy, Ecology, Democracy.

What is the relationship of religion to economy, ecology, and democracy? In our fraught moment, what critical questions about democratic processes, ecosystems, and economic structures are in need of (dis)assembly? What possible futures might emerge from transdisciplinary work across these traditionally siloed scholarly areas of interest? By bringing together scholars in religious, theological, and biblical studies, this 19th Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium seeks to activate perspectives urgently needed in assembling possible futures.

Participants: J. Kameron Carter, Gary Dorrien, Paulina Ochoa Espejo, Marion Grau, Catherine Keller, Hyo-Dong Lee, Kathryn Lofton, Marcia Pally, Jennifer Quigley, Joerg Rieger, Devin Singh, Kathryn Tanner.
