Will you join us?


The Emerging Scholars in Theology and Arts Colloquium is at the heart of DITA10’s purpose: to celebrate past research and cast a vision for the future of the discipline.

The Colloquium will take place during DITA10. The vision for the three days is for students and scholars to have meaningful and sustained dialogue, to engage with one another’s work with rigor and charity, and to create a community that sustains the field for years to come.
