The Ecclesiology and Ethnography Network is a global community of scholars working at the intersections of theology and ethnography. Together with Emory’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, we will be holding our second annual North American conference in April 2024. This conference will be intimate and dynamic, fostering creative conversations across diverse specialisms and learning at the intersection of qualitative research, theology, and the world church.
A sibling to the annual conference in Durham UK (which can often be difficult for North American scholars to attend due to its location and timing), we keep the community spirit of that meeting alive by prioritizing the work of doctoral students and early career scholars. This will be an excellent place to workshop one’s project as a post graduate student, early career researcher, or pastor/scholar in ministry in conversation with prominent senior scholars including Pete Ward, Durham; Natalie Wigg-Stevenson, Emmanuel College; and Christian Scharen, LSTC and St. Lydia’s. Expect a collaborative space of generous learning and supportive critique.
Conference registration will open February 15th, 2024. Both in-person and hybrid options for participation and presentation are available. A call for papers has been published here or click on the button below.
