Call for Papers

The last few years have been marked by unraveling and resilience across the globe. Chaos seems to be the only constant amidst a world in flux. 

The Koinonia Forum is the annual PhD student conference at Princeton Theological Seminary. We invite paper proposals for this upcoming conference on the theme of “Christianity Amidst Chaos”.

Topics from all disciplines are welcome, including but not limited to: Philosophy, Politics, Economics, History, Literature, Practical Theology, Theology, Biblical Studies, Music, Art History, Sociology, Anthropology, Religious Studies, Area studies, Ethnic studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Conference Dates: March 3-4, 2023

The conference will kick off with a Keynote speaker on the evening of March 3, followed by a wine reception.

Papers will be presented in thematic panels moderated by faculty the next day, March 4,  with time for questions and discussions.

Affordable housing is available through Princeton Seminary’s Erdman Center, and all participants to the conference can apply for limited subsidized housing grants.

Forum Coordinators: Stephen Di Trolio, Reese Grosfeld, J.Y. Lee and Jess Winderweedle.

Please submit a proposal of around 150-200 words via the Registration button by December 15, 2022.
