The eighth annual Society of Vineyard Scholars conference will be held on June 22-24, 2017 in New Haven, CT, USA. The conference will be hosted by Elm City Vineyard Church, and all meetings will be held on the beautiful campus of Yale Divinity School. This interdisciplinary, international conference is for Vineyard and “Vineyard-friendly” folks who like to think theologically in community. All are welcome. For non-US participants, registration fees will be covered and, where possible, host housing will be provided free of charge. Extensive conference details will follow in the coming weeks, including information about plenary speakers, registration, housing, travel, and so on.
But for now… the SVS Program Committee is thrilled to announce a CALL FOR PAPERS for this upcoming 2017 conference.
The conversations at this conference will attend to themes at the intersection of the Kingdom of God and public life. The Program Committee is soliciting presentations on four primary interdisciplinary topics:
- The Kingdom and the Nations
- Pedagogy and the Kingdom
- The Vineyard and Protestantism
- The Kingdom and the Flourishing of Cities
The Program Committee is also soliciting work for a variety of more focused, disciplinary conversations:
- Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Bible
- Writing Vineyard History
- Reading Black and Womanist Theologies in the Vineyard
- Poetry as Theological Discourse
- And more…
Each of the above themes are laid out in far greater detail in the Call For Papers. If these topics sound interesting to you, please download the Call For Papers, read it carefully, and consider submitting a proposal.
The Program Committee will be reviewing proposals in a variety of formats and media. Whether you are a scholar, a writer, an artist, a musician, or something else, you are welcome and encouraged to make a proposal.
Proposals must be emailed to by March 15th, 2017. The Program Committee will respond no later than April 15th, 2017.
