Responses"

Presentations would focus on the Anglican/Episcopal tradition responding to historical experiences of traumas from the Reformation to the present.

Possible Topics

Some examples of potential traumas include:

  • political and social upheavals;
  • displacement and refugee identities;
  • personal, psychological trauma and experiences of abuse and victimhood;
  • Indigenous identity and the legacy of Residential Schools;
  • community disestablishment and realignment;
  • war;
  • liturgical and doctrinal revision;
  • natural and human made disasters.

In addition to substantial consideration of the identified trauma from historical and theological perspectives, and the response of the Church, archival implications (sources, preservation, migration, erasure, memory, research) would also be addressed.
