NABPR Region-at-Large (CTS 2017)

June 1– 4, Salve Regina University, Newport, Rhode Island

 

The NABPR Region-at-Large welcomes proposals from NABPR and CTS members on topics related to the conference theme, “American Catholicism in the 21st Century.” Possibilities for paper proposals include, but are not limited to, themes such as:

 

  1. Contemporary Baptist/Catholic Engagement

With the European Reformations five hundred years in the past, is Baptist/Catholic ecumenical engagement the next radical Baptist reformation? Paper proposals for this section may address: varieties of Baptist dialogue and engagement with American Catholicism, including: Southern Baptist-Catholic alliances on social issues; Baptist/Catholic dialogue on doctrinal theology; community organizing alliances; and Baptist receptions of Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis.

 

  1. Baptist Social Resistance

From its earliest days, the Baptist family has actively engaged resistance against ruling political, clerical, and social powers, from the early European radical reformers, to Roger Williams, to Walter Rauschenbusch, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Paper proposals for this section may address: “baptist” reexaminations of American exceptionalism and manifest destiny; supersessionist theologies; beloved community; and Baptist appropriations of shared Catholic heritage for social resistances.

 

  1. Baptists in 21st Century America

Shifting cultural dynamics, refugee resettlement, and the wars in the Middle East have all contributed to the changing face of Baptist identity in America. Paper proposals for this section may address: Baptist responses to current social crises, expanding Baptist cultural identities, 21st century manifestations of early Baptist mission efforts (e.g., the growth of Burmese Baptist churches in America); expanded views of Baptist political engagement; ecclesial engagements of gender, sexuality, race, and class; and Baptist liturgy and worship.

 

Please submit paper proposals of 500 words, including one’s current institutional affiliation and position, to Amy Chilton Thompson or Mike Broadway by Friday, December 16, 2016.

  • Amy L. Chilton Thompson, Fuller Theological Seminary,
  • Mike Broadway, Shaw University Divinity School,
