Quaker Studies Exploratory Session

Theme: Book Review Session on The Oxford Handbook of Quaker Studies (2013)
Carole Dale Spencer, Earlham School of Religion, Presiding
Sunday – 1:00 PM-2:30 PM; Convention Center 342

This session is devoted to examining The Oxford Handbook of Quaker Studies (ed. by Stephen W. Angell and Pink Dandelion, Oxford University Press, 2013), a collection of 37 original articles by the foremost authorities in Quaker Studies. Its scope is global and interdisciplinary, and it is divided into four major parts: the history of Quakerism; Quaker theology and spirituality; Quaker witness; and Quakers’ broader engagement with culture. Questions under consideration include: What contributions does this book make to the genre of denominational studies? What is its significance for the study of comparative forms of mysticism? What contributions does it make toward understanding Quaker origins and development? Afterward, a business meeting will be held to ascertain interest in an ongoing AAR Quaker Studies Group.

Panelists:
Matthew Hedstrom, University of Virginia
Ann K. Riggs, Friends Theological College, Kenya
Jon Kershner, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
Paul Anderson, George Fox University

Responding:
Stephen Ward Angell, Earlham School of Religion
Pink Dandelion, University of Birmingham
