6/6-6/16 Multiracial Biblical Studies Symposium
The two overarching aims are to decenter whiteness as eurocentric, normative, and monoracial and to create multiple foundations, sources, methods, and starting points towards multiracial biblical studies. The symposium pursues both goals by bringing together Africana, African American, Asian, Asian American, Euro American, European, Indigenous, Islander, Latinx, and Latino/a American scholars as a multiracial coalition to rethink the practice of biblical interpretation.
The symposium is cosponsored by Baker Academic, Baylor University Press, Belmont University, NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community, Society of Biblical Literature, and Westminster John Knox Press.
