Good news for all the aspiring scholars out there working on historical issues in Unitarian-Universalism. Boston will be the site later this year for a conference on October 17-18 (Saturday and Sunday) entitled “The Future of Unitarian Universalist Scholarship.” Students in doctoral programs for theology, religious studies, or similar fields are invited to present their research to a gathering of graduate students, UU history scholars, and seminarians (the conference is open to the public).
Saturday will be a day of student presentations at Harvard Divinity School, with a reflective discussion by a panel of UU leaders at the end of the day. Sunday’s activities will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Association’s headquarters, where participants will be part of small group discussions based on their disciplines and a broader about teaching and scholarship in higher education.
Additional details may be obtained by contacting Dan McKanan (dmckanan [at] hds.harvard.edu), the Ralph Waldo Emereson Unitarian Universalist Association Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School. This conference is jointly sponsored by Harvard Divinity School, the Harvard Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Students, and the Panel on Theological Education of the UUA.
