Conference: "Remembering Muted Voices: Conscience, Dissent, Resistance and Civil Liberties in World War I through Today," October 19-21, 2017. This interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial (Kansas City, MO), will explore the experiences of those groups and individuals who raised their voices against the war, sometimes at great cost. A fuller conference description is available from Andrew Bolton (abolton@cofchrist.org). A "Call for Papers" will follow in 2016.

Conference: "Mennonite/s Writing VII: Movement, Transformation, Place," March 12-15, 2015, Fresno Pacific University. Co-sponsored by Fresno Pacific University and Hesston College. This seventh conference on Mennonite writing will both celebrate and examine writing that addresses experiences of movement, transformation, and/or place, and their influences on Mennonite literary culture. The theme is intended to be broadly interpreted. The conference welcomes a wide variety of voices and seeks to create a site of learning and inspiration. Writers of all ages, disciplines, and cultural or ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to attend the conference. For more information: www.fresno.edu/mennos-writing.

Call for Essays: "Mennonite Systematic Theology," The Conrad Grebel Review. David Cramer's "Mennonite Systematic Theology in Retrospect and Prospect," which appeared in the Fall 2013 volume of The Conrad Grebel Review, has generated considerable debate about the history, future, and even possibility of "Mennonite Systematic Theology." The occasion of this debate serves as the impetus for further sustained reflection on what "Mennonite Systematic Theology" is or may be. To that end, we invite submissions of original scholarly articles, especially those constructive in orientation, on this amorphous and contested theme. Articles may address one or more of the following issues: the qualifier "systematic"; the qualifier "Mennonite"; internal coherence and diversity; Mennonite systematic theology and the Bible (and biblical theology); global perspectives; historical perspectives; "Mennonite theology" and "Anabaptist theology"; Mennonite theology and ecumenism and/or the wider Christian tradition; theology and praxis or lived faith; theology and ecclesiology or doxology. Length: 5,000-7,000 words. See further submission guidelines. Deadline: April 1, 2015. …
