Remembering David A. Sánchez (1960-2019)

David A. Sánchez, Associate Professor of Early Christianity at Loyola Marymount University, died unexpectedly on Saturday, April 6, 2019. He was a pioneering Latinx Biblical scholar whose impact reached beyond his discipline and included the Political Theology Network. We have asked mentors, colleagues, students, and friends to reflect on his many contributions.

Quick Takes

I want to make a case for the possibility of creating a public that can see Native religion, conceive of Native sovereignty, and then, perhaps, support the protection of beloved places under the mantle of religious freedom.

Justice

John’s account of Jesus’ commissioning of his disciples differs from that of the Synoptics in illuminating ways. Through an understanding of the relationship between Jesus’ own commission and that of his disciples, we can gain a richer appreciation of the primary character of our political task.

The Politics of Scripture

We invite proposals of 200-300 words for projects exploring political theology, broadly understood as an interdisciplinary conversation about intersections of religious and political ideas and practices.

Around the Network

This international and interdisciplinary conference aims to interrogate both the roles of theology in populism and the roles of populism in theology.

Around the Network

The dialogue at the 2019 Black Muslim Psychology Conference will explore the impact of internalized oppression, notions of Black inferiority and assumptions of Islamic inauthenticity on identity, well-being and development of Black/African Muslims in the United States.

Around the Network

American Indian Religious Freedom

Is the framework of religious freedom suitable for the protection of American Indian sacred lands?

States of Exception

Public art as political theology brings sacred images to the political arena…even when the uses of sacred images transgress deeply held religious convictions for the sake of much needed social transformation.

Traditions

The first half of our conversation about how white teaching and preaching how white preaching and teaching can change, have changed, and/or must still change in the face of #BlackLivesMatter (the moment and the movement).
