Winebrenner Theology Seminary is pleased to announce the next Sacred Rhetoric conference.  The conference will be held October 16-17, 2020 on Winebrenner’s campus in Findlay, OH.  The plenary address will be delivered by Brad S. Gregory, the Dorothy G. Griffin Collegiate Chair of History and Director of the Institute of Advanced Study at the University of Notre Dame.  Sacred Rhetoric is an interdisciplinary event devoted to the consideration of discourses of religion.  Potential proposals can cover diverse topics including, but not limited to, philosophies of religious language, accounts of religion as a discipline, and internal dialogue within religious traditions.  While the conference is open to any topic related to religion and religious communication, the planning committee is particularly interested in proposals related to the depiction of religion in media, religion in American politics, and religion and modernity.

Please send a 300 word abstract and a short c.v. by March 31, 2020 to insure full consideration.  Inquiries and abstracts should be sent to Dr. David Barbee at  Graduate students are welcome to apply.
