"Inventing Evangelicalism" for SEA 2015 (Chicago)

updated: 
Friday, August 1, 2014 - 4:16pm
Society of Early Americanists/Omohundro Institute

This is a panel on early evangelicalism as an innovative religious and cultural movement within the mid-eighteenth-century transatlantic world. Many evangelical doctrines and practices have come to assume the status of "orthodoxy" in the 250 years since their introduction, but the controversy they generated, starting in the 1730s and 1740s, suggests that many observers saw in evangelicalism a significant break from Christian tradition. In areas like historical consciousness, theory of interpretation, conversion, epistemology, political theology, and others, early evangelicals articulated new religious ideas they sought to pass off as recoveries of ancient doctrines and practices.

Call for Contributions: A Virtual Underground Railroad

The Virtual Education Project

One of the most effective ways of learning is to immerse ourselves in the cultures we study; yet, we often encounter problems when these cultures are separated from us by constraints such as geography or time. When studying various people, places, events, and works, students and teachers rarely have the resources to visit each (if any) historical landmarks pertaining to their subject matter, restricting both research and teaching to textbooks and/or an amalgam of materials from various resources. The Virtual Education Project (VEP) is a large-scale pedagogical undertaking directed at providing both students and teachers with visual introductions to historical and contemporary landmarks (worldwide) relevant to the study of the humanities.
