The Ecclesiology section welcomes papers that pertain to this year’s theme, “‘All the Ends of the Earth:’ Challenge and Celebration of Global Catholicism.” Papers might consider the following topics:

  • 1.     How do marginal and non-Western ecclesial contexts challenge and expand understandings of the Church’s catholicity?
  • 2.     How can ethnography and other methodologies drawn from the social sciences serve the global-ecclesiological task?
  • 3.     How are ecclesial practices influenced by migration, transnationalism, globalization, and/or other global dynamics?
  • 4.     How does Catholicism understand mission from a decolonial perspective? How do institutional articulations of mission interact with local/global experiences of mission?

The conveners will also gladly review papers outside of these areas that pertain to any ecclesiological topic.

 

All papers should be conceived for an effective thirty-minute presentation with a fifteen-minute discussion afterward.

The College Theology Society is a registered, non-profit professional society and a Related Scholarly Organization of the American Academy of Religion.
