Event description
An online conference on Christology, Christian Origins, Race and Ethnicity. Leading Scholars, Discussion

About this event

The follow up to last year's highly successful conference on Christology, the second annual Christ Among the Disciplines conference is an online, interdisciplinary conference on the subject of Race and Ethnicity in Christian Origins which takes place between October 1-4th. We are planning (8) book panels on recent publications from a diverse group of biblical scholars, theologians, and philosophers. Each book panel will be composed of an interdisciplinary selection of between 3-4 world-leading scholars, some of which will be followed by a response from the author.

Amongst many others, conference attendees will hear from the likes of Reggie Williams, M. Shawn Copeland, Lisa Bowens, Amy Peeler, Jeannine Brown, Shively Smith, Eric Williams, Andrew Boakye, Angela Parker, Daniel Hill, Jin Young Choi, Jessica Wai-Fong Wong, Aída Besançon Spencer & Jonathan Tran.

This conference will also be unique in that the papers for the various book panels will be distributed to conference attendees in advance of the live event, allowing participants to familiarize themselves with the material. Indeed, upon reading the papers, conference attendees will be given the opportunity to pre-submit questions for the panelists using a secure link. Additionally, rather than per usual (listening to 4–5 papers straight through), conference participants will instead get to experience a discussion amongst panelists who will first summarize, rather than read, their respective essays. This will not only help avoid the fatigue that arises from online video conferencing, but it will also make for a much more interesting event!

If you are interested in attending and participating in the “Christ Among the Disciplines” conference, make sure to register today! (The link to the panelist essays may be found in closer the date.)

Note: All net proceeds will be directed toward transitioning this conference into an annual venture!

With regard to the future, our hope is to plan a similar conference of this nature on an annual basis. The idea, in other words, is to cultivate something of an online version of AAR/SBL (without membership fees!) that is far more affordable and (hopefully) quite interesting as well. The conference will not, however, be “competing” with AAR/SBL, as the events will not overlap with one another.
