A gathering for those whose interests live at — or near — the intersection of theology with imagination, aesthetics, embodiment, and literature. The interplay of these areas with one another has come to be named as theopoetics, the focus of the event. Organized for theological scholars, religious practitioners, and those who are both, this conference will be a mix of academic discussions, facilitated dialogue, performance, and workshops focused on developing practices that can be taken back to share with our communities of support and accountability.
Given what strikes us as an upswing in interest around the intersection of theology with imagination, aesthetics, and embodiment, we hope to call together those for whom this conversation is compelling, spur conversation, and encourage connections. While there have been conferences before that have focused on theopoetics, this is a unique attempt to be a conference about theopoetics that is organized as theopoetics. A mix of voices, methods, and perspectives, each affirming the mutual influence that theology, faith, imagination, aesthetics, and embodiment have upon one another.
Registration covers all conference events Friday evening through Saturday’s dinner.
Saturday’s breakfast and lunch are not included.
