Religion, Protest and Social Upheaval Conference at the College of the Holy Cross

Dr. Tat-siong Benny Liew and the McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture at the College of the Holy Cross has convened a great conference on “Religion, Protest and Social Upheaval” this week (November 15-17, 2017). I appear to be the exception in a group of well-known theologians and phenomenal religious studies scholars. I’ll be presenting work in progress from my book project on queer activist politics in South Korea and the Korean diaspora. The paper is titled “Between Dissent and Heresy: Queer Politics in Korea,” discussing events that have led up to the preposterous recent charge by a major Korean Presbyterian denomination that affirming queer sexualities and nonconforming gender identities constitute heresy. See full schedule here. (My first time in Worcestor, MA!)
