A quick report-back: We presented a preview of this collection at the 2008 College Theology Society Convention in Newport, Rhode Island last weekend. And we’re calling it a success! Our paper was well-received and left us hopeful about the book’s reception next summer.
The conference’s theme was “Catholic Identity and the Laity.” Presentations ranged from how lay people interact with secular society to Zeni Fox’s exploration of how creative Catholic laity are. Ours fit in nicely into a conversation about “Women & Religion”–other papers explored the role of La Virgen in women’s lives and how theology can aid recovery from abuse.
