Call for Papers: Suffering, Diminishment and the Christian Life

(25 April 2017)

Conference: January 8-10, 2018 at Ushaw College, Durham, UK

Is love intrinsically linked to suffering? Are suffering, diminishment and loss on some fundamental level good? This is the direction in which recent theological emphases on vulnerability and kenosis might seem to point. In this conference we will seek to bring the question of the status and meaning of suffering in Christian life and Christian theology into focus, and to reflect on it from the perspectives of biblical, historical, pastoral, political and systematic theology.

Send abstracts of between 200-300 words for 20-minute papers to Rachel Davies at rachelannemariedavies@gmail.com by June 15, 2017.
