Presenters will be asked to provide a full manuscript for precirculation by October 15, 2012.
Liberal theology in all its varieties has been a robust intellectual and religious presence in North America from the colonial era to the present. The theologians involved with this Group, who come from many different universities and religious schools in North America and from abroad, are committed to continuing this tradition. Our focus is plural — we look across religious traditions. It is interdisciplinary — we welcome the participation, among others, of historians, political scientists, anthropologists, sociologists, and philosophers engaged with questions of vital moment to liberal theologies. Our gaze is to the future — we are determined to develop new perspectives, new ways of speaking, and new combinations of ideas that will better address the intellectual and social circumstances in which we find ourselves. Participants in the Group are welcome to access the Liberal Theologies website.
