The Future of Unitarian-Universalist Scholarship

There is an exciting event being held this weekend, October 17-18, at Harvard Divinity School and the UUA.  Entitled “The Future of Unitarian-Universalist Scholarship,” it is a conference of eleven UU doctoral students from around the country presenting their ongoing research projects, with responses from Lee Barker (president of Meadville Lombard), Dan McKanan (Emerson UUA Scholar at Harvard), and Rebecca Parker (president of Starr King).  Paper topics include inter-faith families, UU theology, and Rev. Jeremiah Wright.  For more information, download this pdf.

New Editor of Journal of Unitarian Universalist History

After a decade of service, Dean Grodzins will soon be stepping down as editor of the Journal of Unitarian Universalist History.  All of us who work on liberal religious history are grateful for the time and effort that he has devoted to this cause.  And we are happy to welcome Dr. Kathleen Parker as the incoming editor, who will take over full-time after the upcoming issue.  Another change: for the first time this will be a paid position, not merely volunteer, a change Dr. Grodzins was necessary given the amount of work involved.
