Reformed Tradition and Ecclesial Life in Asian America


We invite proposals for papers that examine the Reformed tradition and ecclesial life focusing on the Asian North American context. Interdisciplinary papers engaging with current or historical issues in theology, immigration, race and politics, gender, sex and sexuality, transnational relations with diasporic communities, theological formation of church leaders, and tensions with and receptions of Reformed theologians and models of Reformed faith would all be suitable topics for inquiry. Historical, theological, intercultural, missiological, sociological, ethnographic, postcolonial, and other methodological approaches are welcome, especially constructive retrievals, and imaginings. We especially welcome proposals that focus on communities that have been historically underrepresented with the Asian North American community, including Southeast Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander, and communities, as well as interracial dynamics with other BIPOC communities.
