Call for Papers - 2006 Luce Conference

Call for papers for the 2006 Luce Conference on Korean Christianity

Call for papers:  The Great Revival Movement in Korea, 1903-1908  The Annual Conference of the Luce Foundation Korean Christianity Program will be held in the middle of April at the UCLA Center for Korean Studies. This year's theme is The Great Revival Movement in Korea, 1903-1908.  The great revival in Pyongyang in 1907 was one of the most important events in the history of Christianity in Korea and East Asia. We welcome the academic papers on the Korean Great Revival Movement, celebrating its coming centenary. We request proposals on the theme for possible presentations at the one or two-day conference. As this is the second conference on the same, we need papers on more specific aspects of the great revival movement, for example, Korean Christian's concept of the sins during the movement, its liturgical indigenization, its socio-political impact, its leaders' pheumatology, and the Bible Study Classes and revival. Deadline for submissions of the proposal: February 18, 2006 The Center will provide the selected presenters with airfare, accommodation, and honorary. Please refer to the previous conference program linked below.
