Canadian Theological Society Circles of Conversation The Canadian Theological Society was founded in 1955 to promote theological reflection and writing in a Canadian context. Today it is a lively community of theologians from all corners of Canada who represent a broad range of denominations and scholarly interests, and serve the university, seminary, and church. Our time together at Congress is a wonderful mix of scholarly presentations and panels, networking and social time, and supporting young scholars through mentoring events. We welcome all who are interested in supporting the life of theological scholarship in Canada. Whether you are still working on your dissertation, a junior scholar, or an established expert in your field – the Canadian Theological Society looks forward to your enriching participation in our work. Alongside its peer disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, theology is invited to open up much-needed space for dialogue, debate, and dissent, and showcase creative critical engagements within and across disciplines, with topics as diverse as sustainability, accessibility, global mobility, health, culture and education. With this year’s annual meeting, the Canadian Theological Society thus wishes to foster and encourage circles of conversation among scholars, educators, students, leaders, activists, and the public at large, so that people can speak with one another, listen and learn together. We welcome theological papers from all religious traditions, and especially seek those that engage Indigenous traditions of Canada. Given the theme of conversation, we also are particularly eager to explore theologies outside of what has been considered traditional Christianity, including postcolonial, feminist, environmental and animal studies. If you are eager to attend and take part in theological presentations, panels and discussions welcoming and nurturing interdisciplinary cross-pollinating and constructive debate, join us on 3-5 June 2019 for what promises to be a stimulating gathering. Please consult the Call for Papers posted on the Canadian Theological Society website and submit a proposal for a 20/20 presentation or a panel by 25 January 2019.
