Earl Lectures in Partnership with the Boswell Lecture is a two-day conference that addresses critical theological, pastoral, and social issues of the day. For more than a hundred years, Pacific School of Religion (PSR) has hosted the Earl Lectures and Leadership Conference.
Under the theme of “Borders and Identity,” the Earl Lectures presented in partnership with our Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion‘s Boswell Lecture, will explore how migration across all kinds of borders—both physical and metaphorical—is reshaping our understanding of identity across boundaries of race, culture, religion, gender identity, and nationality. Within the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency, join us for an engaging weekend of workshops, worship, direct action, and networking in conjunction with Pacific School of Religion’s Alumni/ae Reunion Weekend.
The keynote address will be delivered by Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, filmmaker, immigration activist, and founder of Define American.
