The Art and Practice of Teaching Theology

2021 Call for Papers

Timothy Hanchin, Villanova University (PA)

Tracey Lamont, Loyola University New Orleans (LA)


The Art and Practice of Teaching Theology section of the CTS invites presentations that address pedagogical issues related to the conference theme: “The Human in a Dehumanizing World: Re-Examining Theological Anthropology and Its Implications.” Proposals may include, but are not limited to:

  • critically reflecting on the relationship between the educator’s operative anthropology and their pedagogy, particularly in light of the interlocking, dehumanizing crises in our world today;
  • building syllabi and discerning course sources that support an aggiornamento of the Christian tradition’s vision of human subjectivity through interdisciplinary engagement, including but not limited to online or hyflex learning environments;
  • imagining pedagogical practices that demonstrate a deeply relational theological anthropology as articulated in Laudato Si’, Querida Amazonia, and Fratelli Tutti;
  • addressing the political, moral, ecological, and religious dimensions of theological anthropology in undergraduate classrooms;
  • other topics related to the conference theme which focus on the art and practice of teaching theology, especially to undergraduates. 

Proposals should be 250-500 words in length and include one’s current institutional affiliation and position. Proposals should be emailed to both conveners by January 15, 2021. Scholars will be notified of the status of their proposals by mid-February.

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