CFP: Catholic Practical Theology and political theology

2010 Convention of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA), Cleveland Renaissance Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio, USA,
10-13 June 2010


The Topic Session "Practical Theology" of the CTSA has issued a call for papers for next year's convention, particularly inviting contributions on political theology:

Catholic Practical Theology is not limited to seminary preparation. It can also be seen as a kind of political theology embedded in church membership and life that engages ethical issues defined by feminist, sexuality, trauma, and postcolonial theories.

The Practical Theology Administrative Team (Tom Beaudoin, Lynn Bridgers, Susan Abraham) encourages proposals for individual papers, or for complete panels (no more than three persons), that address the prophetic dimension of practical theology today, or the ways in which current trends in practical theology rework the prophetic. We particularly invite proposals that engage practical theology's recent political, ethnographic, communicative, and local-ecclesiological developments. Additionally, we welcome proposals on any aspect of practical theology that relates to Catholic contexts.

Please submit proposals of 100 words to Tom Beaudoin (Fordham University): tbeaudoin@fordham.edu

Include name(s) of presenters, institutional affiliation, and e-mail contact information. CTSA policy restricts each member to one speaking/presenting role per convention. Proposals were due by 1 September 2009 and notifications will be made by 30 September. (Please check with the organizers whether proposals will still be accepted and whether non-members can submit.) Any audio-visual needs must be clearly stated in proposals.
