In January 2020, the Los Angeles Theology Conference will take up the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, under the title “The Third Person of the Trinity.” We’ve already invited five plenary speakers to address this doctrine, and if you know their published work you can already envision some of the approaches these theologians will be taking. This will be a conference that engages pneumatology at a high level, with special attention to the doctrine’s location within the doctrine of God.
But now we need about nine more papers for the breakout sessions, and the way we gather them is to issue an official call for papers. Here’s the link to the call. If you’ve attended LATC before, you know the important place these shorter papers occupy in the structure of the program. They are also, of course, considered for publication in the book that follows the conference.
The deadline for proposals is June 21, so if you’ve got a PhD in a relevant field, and an argument to make about the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, consider sending in a proposal. The LATC editorial team (Oliver Crisp, Katya Covrett, and myself) will choose from among them to round out the 2020 conference.
Also, if you know a theologian who you’d like to hear from on this topic, please help us spread the word: let them know the CFP has been posted and the proposal season is open.
