Postcolonial Theology Network - International Conference
Story Weaving: Colonial Contexts and Postcolonial Theology
Whitley College, Melbourne
23 - 25 January 2012
Story Weaving: Colonial Contexts and Postcolonial Theology international conference was held at Whitley College, within the Melbourne College of Divinity.
This was the third in a series of conferences auspiced by the Postcolonial Theology Network's "Divinity after Empire" project. Before this, the most recent in the series took place at the United Theological College in Bangalore, India (2010), and the next is to be held at St Paul's University, Limuru, Kenya (2014).
The conference had a regional focus on Australasia and Oceania, where, although stories of colonization are diverse, a number of themes have emerged as matters of common concern. An underlying purpose of the conference was to identify both commonalities and differences in postcolonial experiences.
- The Bible and the human rights tradition
- Secularity and governance in postcolonial contexts
- Legal aspects of colonial history
- Postcolonial and Indigenous dimensions of contextual theology
- Cultural contexts of health and healing
- Colonial, Indigenous and postcolonial economies
- Inter-religious dialogue and reconciliation as postcolonial practices
- Ecological theology in postcolonial perspective.
