Call for Proposals

In an effort to encourage research within liberation theology and the development of a new generation of liberation theologians, this Consultation plans for a PhD student-only panel at this year’s Annual Meeting. Please note that we are restricting submissions to PhD students. We will consider a variety of topics, but are most interested in the following two themes:

  • Work that brings liberation theology to bear upon other disciplines, including medical anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, environmental studies, performance studies, law, etc.
  • Work that develops liberation theology by bringing different strands — Latin American, Womanist, Queer, Black, etc. — into dialogue


This Consultation asks “What does liberation theology mean in and for the twenty-first century?” We encourage cross-over dialogue — between contexts and between disciplines — and reflection on the implications of liberationist discourse for the transformation of theology as a whole — methodologically and theologically.
