SEX: RELIGIOUS AND THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES

Princeton Theological Seminary

Graduate Student Conference

February 28-March 1, 2013

Princeton, New Jersey

Sex—as a concept, identity, and practice—has been the target of sustained controversy in public and academic discussions involving religion, theology, politics, and society throughout history.The ways we think and communicate about sex and gender both reveal and inform our assumptions about humanity, relationships, intimacy, embodiment, virtue and vice, sin and salvation, evil, violence, identity formation, family formation, and the salutary organization of societies.The Koinonia Forum Graduate Student Conference, sponsored by the PhD Studies Office of Princeton Theological Seminary, is scheduled for March 7-8, 2013, with a keynote address by Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Associate Professor of Religion and core faculty in the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Wesleyan University.The board of Koinonia Forum invites submissions of proposals for 20-minute conference presentations from emerging scholars whose research pertains to any aspect of this theme.

We warmly welcome and encourage submissions from students of all disciplines and faith traditions, from scholars in history, religion, theology, Christian ethics, moral theology, biblical studies, practical theology, sociology, philosophy, law, classics, and the sciences, regarding the following topics:
