Transpositions: Looking Forward to 2014

transpositionssquare2013 has been an eventful year for Transpositions.

After relaunching as the official blog of ITIA, we have hosted wide-ranging symposia on topics such as Domestic Arts, Beauty, Theology and Comedy, and Imaginative Natural Theology, and welcomed guest contributions from notable artists, scholars and practitioners, including Jeremy Begbie, Bruce Herman, Hans Boersma, and Malcolm Guite.

The end of the year also brings with it changes, including the moving on of some of our regular contributors: Anna Blanch, one of our co-founders as well as resident expert in E.Nesbit; Dave Reinhardt, technological guru with a deep concern for embodiment; and Somer Salomon, erudite in all things related to beauty. It has been a pleasure to serve with these talented writers and thinkers. Finally, as my PhD journey comes to an end, I’ll also be moving on and handing over the reins of editor-in-chief to Chris Brewer who will take over at the start of 2014. I look forward to seeing how Transpositions continues to grow and contribute to the theology and the arts conversation.

As always, thank you for your readership and contribution to this important discussion.

We hope you have a blessed 2014,

Sara Schumacher
