Fifty years from Barth’s own death and one-hundred years from the publication of the Römerbrief, the conference examines how fresh encounters with Karl Barth’s dogmatic theology and biblical exegesis might stimulate, inform, shape, and challenge contemporary reflection on the range of eschatological themes in Christian theology.

Medical Humanism / American Literature

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 30th Annual Conference

May 23-26, 2019, Boston, MA

Given the ongoing healthcare crisis in America—soaring costs, physician shortages, and lack of insurance coverage—and the rising interest in the field of health humanities, I seek projects that illuminate American literature’s contribution to medical humanism. More specifically, I am interested in papers that address how American literature can help us revision our view of the body, health, illness, disease, medical education, and/or the healthcare system.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: A HKS SYMPOSIUM While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.

Re:Black Relationships

Edited Essay Collection (book).

Much has been said about the state and failure of Black relationships in North America. Books like “Is Marriage for White people” by Ralph Richard Banks, gain traction by highlighting that Black women are three times as likely to remain single as white women. Research has shown that absent fathers produce a cultural cycle of parental absenteeism for Black men and women, and the repetitive traits that lead to divorce are environmental rather than genetic. Bottom-line, there are countless barriers and hurdles stacked against black relationships. Many couples struggle with the outside pressures that racism and social discrimination present.
