      Queering the Church: Changing Ecclesial Structures, April 18-19 at
      Boston University

      From 5:00pm on Wednesday, April 18th 2007 to 9:15pm Thursday, April
      19th 2007, at Boston University School of Theology, 745 Commonwealth
      Avenue

      Description

      The format of the conference is a conversation among pastoral leaders,
      practical theologians, systematic theologians, and critical theorists.
      Synopsis: Conference raises several important questions in its panels.
      What happens to the church when it is queered, where queering as a
      verb can denote a rethinking of sexual identities as well as a
      challenging of normative understandings of ecclesiology and liturgy?
      Can a queering of theology do more than critique and deconstruct
      traditional church structures, practices, performances, and
      self-understandings by pointing the way forward to the renewal of the
      church by suggesting new, more liberating and truthful structures,
      practices, performances, and self-understandings? Is ecclesiology a
      good meeting place for queer, practical, and classical theologies?
