Baylor University, Waco, TX
October 20-23, 2021
The Conference on Faith and History (CFH) is a community of scholars exploring the relationship between Christian faith and history. We welcome members from a variety of Christian traditions around the world. We also seek to learn from scholars outside the Christian tradition. Our primary goal is to encourage excellence in the theory and practice of history from the perspective of historic Christianity.
The theme for the meeting is "Protest, Resistance and Transformation: Agents of Change Past and Present." We welcome papers on a wide range of subjects. In this centennial of women in the US getting the right to vote, we are especially focused on those who worked to expand the boundaries of justice and freedom. However, we are also solicit papers on cross-disciplinary research, and the spiritual resources that are available to and possible because of Christian scholars. We hope to gain participation from those on the edges of the academy, including independent scholars, high school teachers, and graduate students.
Proposals for individual papers or panels should be sent to Lisa Clark Diller (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 30, 2021. Proposals should include abstracts, paper titles, and names/institutions/contacts for each paper.
Program details and registration info will be available in 2021.
