The Conference on Faith and History was chartered fifty years ago to uphold, study, and improve the complex relationship between Christian faith and the discipline of history. The event includes a component specifically for undergraduate scholars, starting the day before the regular conference.
In October 2018, the Conference on Faith and History (CFH) will gather to reflect on a theme that has been at its heart since the founding fifty years ago: History and the Search for Meaning. The Conference will consider how the study of the past--in all its fullness and complexity--might bring meaning within institutions, neighborhoods, classrooms, and congregations, as well as how it might promote health and stability for our democracy in an ever-shrinking and even more dangerous world.
The event will be held at Calvin College, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The undergraduate portion of the Conference is scheduled to begin with a plenary session on Wednesday evening, October 3 and continue through the day on Thursday. The regular Conference begins with a Thursday evening (Oct. 4) plenary session and continues through Saturday afternoon (and undergraduate participants are encouraged to stay for the remainder of the Conference). Additional information about the event, as well as registration and housing links, are available at the website.
As an organization, the CFH is interested in how Christian faith in all its manifestations (Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox) plays a role in the lives of professionals, writers, teachers, and colleagues. CFH members work at large public universities, Christian liberal arts colleges, museums, historical sites, libraries, publishing houses, churches and K-12 schools.
