This week I learned from a few of my colleagues about a new theology conference in Los Angeles, called (you guessed it) the “LA Theology Conference.” The lineup looks to be excellent, with plenary addresses from Oliver Crisp, Peter Leithart, Alan Torrance, George Hunsinger, and Katherine Sonderegger. There will also be three breakout sessions consisting of accepted papers from other scholars that submit by the October 12 deadline.
I’m pretty excited about this, especially if it turns out to be an annual event. Even with ETS/SBL having a Western setting for their meeting every once in awhile, it gets expensive traveling from Southern California to the meeting places of conferences that generally take place back East. To have something like this in my own backyard will be great.
