sara coakley and the future of theology symposium

On 12-13 July 2010, in Sydney, an international symposium on “Sarah Coakley and the Future of Systematic Theology”.

Organised by Ben Myers, with contributors from around Australia, New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom, Rome. And one Kiwi-in-exile – me! (I’m doing a paper wanting to have a conversation between prayer and the Spirit as it happens outside the faith community – Bono’s public invoking of the Spirit to be present at their concerts is what has got me pondering).

Topics being covered include:

  • Does systematic theology have a future?
  • Trinity and mysticism
  • Priestly and non-priestly prayer
  • Embodiment and the body of Christ
  • Analytic theology
  • Subjectivity and responsibility
  • Praying theology
  • and a public lecture by Sarah Coakley

More details are here, with a full list of abstracts here.
