CFH Biennial Meeting 2021

Conference on Faith and History 32nd Biennial Meeting

Baylor University

Waco, TX

Fall 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 32nd biennial meeting has been postponed from October 2020 to Fall 2021. For more information, see

Call for Papers

--The Call for Papers will be announced in January 2021--

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.


Program details and registration info will be available in 2021.

Confirmed Plenary Speakers:

  • Jemar Tisby, Ph.D. Candidate, University of Mississippi
  • Kristin Kobes Du Mez, Professor of History and Gender Studies, Calvin University
