The Office of Academic Affairs is proud to announce The Unafraid Symposium, our third annual gathering to celebrate academic excellence at Pacific School of Religion. This year’s theme is Creating a World Where All Can Thrive: Imagining, Deconstructing, Healing, Rebuilding.
This Unafraid Symposium is designed to be a beacon for scholars, practitioners, and dreamers who share PSR’s dedication to a fearless approach to building knowledge and creating a world where all can thrive. It will celebrate the academic achievements of our students and facilitate a robust dialogue to transform our world.
The presented work will reflect PSR’s mission to build collective knowledge and create a world where all can thrive; demonstrate how emerging theologies and spiritual practice can inform and transform our communal life; and provide insight into applying these ideas within and beyond spiritual communities, emphasizing innovation, resilience, and inclusivity.
It’s also a day to be together in community and to spark conversations that will lead to future collaboration and innovation.
