Political Theology Network 2019 Conference

October 17 - October 19

“Political Theology” covers a multidisciplinary field of research that engages the unwieldy relationship between religion and politics out of a desire for justice. At the Political Theology Network Conference, we extend this engagement by bringing together scholars, activists, artists, and religious leaders working both inside and outside the academy.

This three-day conference will feature more than 70 presentations of projects and papers, as well as keynote addresses and plenary sessions. Featured speakers include:

Michelle Alexander, Contributing Opinion Columnist at the New York Times
Gil Anidjar, Chair of the Department of Religion at Columbia University
The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, Co-Chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival
Silvia Federici, Professor Emerita and Teaching Fellow at Hofstra University
Lap Yan Kung, Associate Professor of Cultural and Religious Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong
Intisar A. Rabb, Faculty Director of the Program in Islamic Law at Harvard Law School
Najeeba Syeed, Associate Professor of Interreligious Education at Claremont School of Theology

Space is limited. Please register by Friday, October 11.
