Report: ISAAC-Nagel Reception at the AAR/SBL Annual Meeting

Over a hundred guests celebrated the work of the Institute for the Study of Asian American Christianity and the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity at Calvin College on Nov. 17th at the American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature annual meetings. Prof. Diane Obenchain shared about Nagels’ current projects. Dr. Joel Carpenter is the Director of the Nagel Institute.

In addition to sharing about ISAAC’s programs, it also encouraged the scholars of religion, theology, and biblical scholars who attend the AAR/SBL meetings to join the newly formed Society of Asian North American Christian Studies (SANACS). The new society will promote greatest scholarly attention to Asian Christianity in North America and will publish an Annual journal. Charter membership dues are $45. Contact Dr. Russell Yee for more information.

ISAAC is grateful for this partnership with the Nagel Institute and looks forward to future opportunities to collaborate.

About the Nagel Institute
http://www.calvin.edu/nagel/

Nagel logo The Nagel Institute was founded in 2006 as a service of Calvin College to those who study the rise of Christianity in the global south and east, and to others who are eager to see Christian thought and cultural engagement flourish in those regions.

The mission of the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity is to accomplish significant work in the following three areas. We intend to:

  • Promote a deeper understanding of world Christianity,
  • Partner with study centers to strengthen Christian intellectual movements in the global south and east, and
  • Provoke a reorientation of Christian thought in the North Atlantic region toward the concerns arising from world Christianity.
