Membership Funds Support

The Political Theology Network began in 2014 as an effort to provide an intellectual home for those who existed uneasily within other disciplinary associations. From 2017 to 2022, PTN was supported by start-up grants from the Henry Luce Foundation. In that time, we have held national conferences (2018, 2019 and 2022) and more focused events on themes ranging from intersectionality, provincialization of the field, death and religious freedom. Our members organize and participate in book clubs, virtual workshops, dissertation writing groups and blogs. In podcasts, on the website and at events, PTN is exploring what political theology has been and what it might be. Collectively, we are expanding the themes that are explored and the voices that drive that creative endeavor.

In 2021, we became a member organization and in 2022 we began the transition to a self-sustaining network. We have continued to host national conferences and provide a range of virtual and in-person spaces for conversations that are not happening elsewhere. The PTN is now an organization with over 2100 members. If you aren’t a member, please consider joining. If you are, please consider renewing. With the support of annual membership dues, we can continue to create spaces for exploring new and challenging ideas.
