The Ecclesiology and Ethnography network is a global community of scholars working at the intersections of theology and ethnography. Together with the Overseas Ministries Study Center at Princeton Theological Seminary (OMSC@PTS), we will be holding our first annual North American conference in March 2023.  This inaugural 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 will 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 John Swinton, Aberdeen; 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.

 

Details regarding conference registration and accommodations will be posted here when finalized. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for our call for proposals in the coming weeks.
