The Theological Engagement with California Culture (TECC) Project is a new collaborative project is seeking to engage the most pressing issues in California’s recent history, while conducting interdisciplinary theological engagement in addressing its research questions.
The project is hosting its first event in a proposed 4-paper session at the November 2011 meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in San Francisco. The “call for papers” is open until the end of this month and welcome proposals engaging any issue within California’s historical or contemporary cultural setting from a theological standpoint. Papers should be delivered in a maximum of 30 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion, which may be devoted to a panel discussion with presenters. Fred Sanders has noted that Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Seminary, is scheduled to be part of the conversation in San Francisco as well, exploring the theology of California. But the window is still open for solid paper proposals until the end of the month.
