2016 World Catholicism Research Poster Presentation

Image of dove and flame, both symbols of the Holy Spirit
On April 15, 2016, select undergraduates from Catholic Studies courses will participate in an interactive poster session, presenting their research on the theologies and politics of Spirit movements in the global South, which is this year's World Catholicism Week conference topic: "Fire from Heaven: Pentecostalism, Catholicism and the Spirit in the World."

Three of our conference speakers will be among the audience, and after the presentations, each will offer their thoughts and comments, as respondents, on the students' research. Those speakers are

  • Amos Yong (Director, Center for Missiological Research—Fuller Theological Seminary—Pasadena, CA)
  • Laurenti Magesa (Professor, Moral & African Theology—Hekima University College—Nairobi, Kenya)
  • Cecília Loreto Mariz (Professor, Sociology—Rio de Janeiro State University—Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
The presenters will be those undergraduates whose research papers were evaluated by their professors as among the top in their courses. Following the presentation, the students are invited to join all of the speakers for the conference's opening dinner.
