Timothy Hanchin, Villanova University (PA)

Tracey Lamont, Loyola University New Orleans (LA)


The Art and Practice of Teaching Theology section of the CTS invites presentations that address pedagogical issues related to the conference theme: “Human Families: Identities, Relationships, and Responsibilities.” Proposals may include, but are not limited to:

  • teaching theology responsive to evolving and culturally diverse understandings of human family;
  • building syllabi and choosing texts that reflect local and global incarnations of human families at American Catholic universities;
  • constructing pedagogy attentive to the relationship between human and biotic families;
  • utilizing relational or culturally responsive pedagogy for undergraduate theological education;
  • critically appropriating ecclesial wisdom regarding human and biotic families within the pedagogical context of Catholic higher education;
  • addressing the political, moral, ecological, and religious dimensions of migration in undergraduate classrooms.
  • other topics related to the conference theme which focus on the art and practice of teaching theology, especially to undergraduates.

Proposals should be 250-500 words in length and include one’s current institutional affiliation and position. Proposals should be emailed to both conveners by December 15, 2019. Scholars will be notified of the status of their proposals by mid-January.

The College Theology Society is a registered, non-profit professional society and a Related Scholarly Organization of the American Academy of Religion.
