Graduate Conference: The Use and Abuse of History for Theology and Ethics


In grounding normative statements, we often – some would say, we must – refer to the past. The ethical question, What should we do? is never far removed the historical question, What happened? This conference seeks to address the necessity and fragility of historical grounds for theological and ethical norms. How can we responsibly engage historical texts or voices without allowing our ethical commitments to distort that history? How can we at the same time ensure that our historical research meets our ethical standards and is conscientious of the uses and abuses to which it might be put? To what extent does or ought our own historical context determine our norms? These will be the guiding questions of our conference.
