Call for Papers

GTU at AAR/SBL

by Arthur Holder (December 2012 Dean's Newsletter)

Every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving, several thousand scholars of religion gather for the annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. When this event took place in Chicago last month, the GTU was as usual well represented. These two scholarly organizations are by no means the only ones that attract people from the GTU, but they probably do cover the widest range of disciplines and fields within theology and religious studies.

Daily experiences remind me that the GTU tag line probably ought to read: “Where religion engages the world,” rather than “where religion meets the world.” The member schools, centers, institutes, and affiliates of the Graduate Theological Union actively engage the world in all its diversity—provoking new thought, igniting expanded spiritual awareness, and transforming lives. Let me offer just a few recent examples of how the GTU is shaping the future of religious studies:
