College Theology SocietyServing Church and Academy Since 1954


2022 Call for Papers

B. Kevin Brown, Gonzaga University (WA)

Daniel Horan, Saint Mary's College (Indiana)


In keeping with this year’s conference theme—“Why We Can’t Wait’: Racism and the Church”—the Spirituality section of the College Theology Society is seeking paper and panel proposals that explore the three aims of this year’s theme within the context of the study, teaching, and practice of spirituality: “1) centering marginalized racial and ethnic voices; 2) providing the space for the society to contend with and understand its Whiteness in a productive way; and 3) revitalizing attention to embodied pedagogy.”


We also welcome other proposals on topics related to spirituality more generally, while giving priority to those that engage the conference theme.


Proposals should be 250-500 words in length, should include the scholar’s name, position, and institution, as well as any AV needs anticipated, and be emailed to the spirituality section conveners ( and by December 15, 2021. Typically, you must be a CTS member in good standing to present at the conference. However, for this year’s conference, nonmembers are welcome to submit proposals for consideration and present provided they register for the conference in advance. Proposals will be reviewed and scholars will be notified of the status of their proposal by mid-January.



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