GENERAL CONFERENCE ARCHIVES CONFERENCE, Jan 8-9, 2018, GC
The General Conference Archives, the Association of SDA Historians (ASDAH), and the History Department of Washington Adventist University are co-sponsoring a two-day conference on Adventist history, to be held January 8-9, 2018.
Next year, the American Historical Association’s annual meeting will be held in Washington D.C. As we did four years ago, when the AHA met in D.C., we are organizing a conference to take advantage of the fact that many of you will be attending, or would like to attend the AHA and the ASCH. We suggest that, if you do come for those meetings, you arrange to stay on an extra couple of days.
The conference theme: “Situating Adventist History.” A weakness in Adventist historiography is that events in Adventism often seem to take place almost in a vacuum. While we believe this Church is divinely ordained, we cannot fully understand its development in isolation from wider historical currents.
The conference will start on Monday January 8, with several keynote papers that provide context to the emergence of Seventh-day Adventism. We will shortly be issuing a Call for Papers - we hope to receive proposals for papers that will contextualize Adventism in a wider history. These papers will fill out the conference program.
Keynote speakers already confirmed are:
We hope to confirm other keynote speakers shortly.
In closing, please save the dates January 8-9; and please keep a look out for the Call for Papers which will be released soon.
