2024 Call for Papers

Western Theological Seminary invites current undergraduates and others considering seminary to submit presentation proposals for the second annual Great Lakes Theology Conference. 

The theme for 2024 is humanity. What does it mean to be human? And/or what does it mean to be embodied? And how does technology feature in that conversation?

Abstracts will be accepted starting August 1.
