I am looking forward to speaking at TheoCon: Theology in a Time of Crisis. So many speakers and everything is online. Please do register.
Our moment is one of crisis upon crisis. We are at a turning point historically and while we cannot simply return to ‘normal’, a growing number of people do not want to. For too long, some of the best resources and voices for wrestling with our biggest questions have remained distant from too many. TheoCon intends to address that through an exploratory project in public theology, connecting leading figures within academia with the public. Our goal is not to think for you, but with you, providing intellectual resources from multiple disciplines and then inviting you to engage, contribute, question, and help lead us out of this time.
Think of this as a hybrid style conference. Each of our keynote speakers will be sharing their talk in video and audio for you to engage. Then we will be scheduling live panel discussions in which the speakers and panelists will not only talk to each other, but will respond to your questions and to the responses to their talks. All of the talks and invitations to live sessions will be delivered via email. All you need to do is sign up here, and we will take care of the rest.
TheoCon is hosted by the University of Edinburgh, and is associated with the School of Divinity. The project is made possible by the Rapid Response Impact Grant, College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Edinburgh.
We are bringing together a host of leading scholars across different disciplines. Here are some of the confirmed speakers, with more on the way.
