The Duke Graduate Conference in Theology (DGCT) has issued a call for papers for its 2014 conference. The conference, which will be held Oct. 3-4 at the Divinity School, is seeking papers from graduate students related to the conference theme “Do Not Be Silent at My Tears: Theological Perspectives on Suffering.”
The DGCT provides a forum for graduate students from Duke and other institutions to engage in theological issues in collaboration with each other and with leading thinkers in their fields. Students from the fields of theology, historical theology, biblical studies, practical theology, and theological ethics are invited to submit proposals. Relevant proposals from other fields, including philosophy and religious studies, are also welcome. Proposals of no more than 350 words are due on Aug. 1.
The 2014 conference will feature keynote speaker M. Shawn Copeland, professor of systematic theology at Boston College.
