Hosted in conjunction with the American Catholic Historical Association, the ASCH Spring Meeting is shaping up to be a truly fantastic event. With more than twenty sessions and some seventy papers, the programme features such rich and diverse themes as "The Afterlife of Reformations," "Protestant Deaconnesses and Women's Ordination," "Medieval Spirituality and Reform," "Teaching the History of Christianity in a Multi-Religious World," among many others. Beyond the panel sessions, there will be a distinguished plenary address from Ethan Shagan (UC Berkeley, History), a Women's Breakfast, a Graduate Student Breakfast, and two receptions -- one held at the Doug Adams Art Gallery at Graduate Theological Union, and the other held at the Bade Museum of Biblical Archeology at the Pacific School of Religion. On Sunday morning there will be a screening of "An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story, a documentary film by D. Healon Gaston. Finally, the conference organizers will make available a variety of self-guided tours of religious sites around beautiful, bustling Berkeley, California.
There is still time to take advantage of Early Bird registration for this conference. All further information about the Spring Meeting will be published on the ASCH website as it becomes available.
