Oral, Print, and Digital Cultures in World Christianity and the History of Mission On-line, from New College, University of Edinburgh, 22–24 June 2021 Proposals due: 20 March 2021 29 March 2021 Social media hashtag: #YaleEdin2021
The next meeting of the Yale-Edinburgh Group on World Christianity and the History of Mission is to take place on-line, from New College, University of Edinburgh, from 22-24 June 2021. More information about the on-line format will be provided later.
We anticipate that the on-line format will increase the number of paper proposals that are submitted. Yet we will also be working with a condensed time schedule due to the multiple time zones we will be spanning. We will prioritise early career scholars and offer two options for paper presentations: (1) a short oral presentation in real time (15min + Q&A time) and (2) a presentation in the form of a pre-recorded 3 min video with a single slide.
When submitting an abstract please ensure that:
it is close to the theme of the conference,
you state the year you gained your PhD, or your student status
your preference for short oral presentation or pre-recorded 3 min video. Depending on demand, you may not be offered your first choice.
The theme of the meeting is the same as that of the cancelled 2020 conference.
Studies in World Christianity has been a pioneer in the academic field for over a quarter of a century. Undoubtedly, the journal reflects the idiosyncrasies of its various editors and its associated Centre for the Study of World Christianity. But more importantly, it has become a historical record of some of the major concerns in this important field. To make this easier to explore, we have recently produced a digital index of the journal.
Oral, Print, and Digital Cultures in World Christianity and the History of Mission New College, University of Edinburgh, 25–27 June 2020 Proposals due: March 6, 2020 Registration deadline: March 30, 2020
The next meeting of the Yale-Edinburgh Group on World Christianity and the History of Mission will take place in New College, University of Edinburgh, from 25–27 June 2020. The theme will be Oral, Print, and Digital Cultures in World Christianity and the History of Mission.
Studies in world Christianity and the history of mission have not been afraid to engage the topic of culture. However, they have mostly referred to the encounters of Western Christian cultures with another, whether that be Confucian and Hindu culture, or the indigenous cultures of the Americas, Africa, and Oceania. This year’s theme uses the language of culture to speak about three different mediums in which the Christian message is communicated and the Christian life is practiced. These cultures have developed somewhat chronologically, but they also simultaneously coexist in the contemporary world.
