|Theology of Martin Luther King Jr.|
Call for Proposals
This Group invites proposals on the following topics:
While the two sessions outlined above represent our intended focus for the 2013 Annual Meeting, we remain open to other papers session or roundtable proposals that reflect the mission and purpose of our Group.
The work of this Group is focused on creating conversations around the unique contributions of Martin Luther King Jr. to the Christian theological tradition in the twentieth century and to the religious, cultural, political, and economic consequences of his work. We are particularly interested in the many facets of the Civil Rights Movement, of which King was a significant part. These explorations have included a focus on the role of women in the movement, the economic dimensions of King’s work, and his use of both the theological traditions and rhetoric of the Black Church. In all of our sessions we are interested in fostering inter- and multidisciplinary approaches to this project.
