So after presenting at the Bonner Foundation annual Summer Leadership Institute hosted this year at Siena College (the title of the lecture was “From Service to Solidarity: The Bonner Theme in a Franciscan Key for Bonner Programs at Catholic Colleges and Universities”), I’m on the road to yet another conference. This will make for the third conference presentation in four weeks (yikes!) with one more next week in Chicago for the ITMS Conference.
I’m excited about the CTS (College Theology Society) conference this week — there are lots of awesome people attending and presenting. Among the many people that I look forward to seeing again or meeting for the first time in person are Brian Flanagan from Marymount University in Virginia who I initially met via Facebook and had the opportunity to cross paths briefly in Washington, DC; some of the excellent contributors to the Women In Theology blog (if you’re not reading them, you really should!); and a fellow WTU alum, Dan Castillo, who I haven’t seen in more than a year — just to name a few.
For those who are interested in the title of my paper, it’s “The (Im)possible Poetics of John D. Caputo: The Grammar of the Kingdom in a World of Violence,” in the ‘contemporary theologies’ session. If you’re going to be there too, I look forward to seeing you! Safe travels to all!
