Loyola University Chicago will mark the 50th anniversary of the conclusion of Vatican II with a public symposium that explores how women's lives across the globe have changed since the Council, and how these changes have affected the Church. Women have taken on new roles, challenged traditional teachings, and raised new questions:
- What has and has not changed for women in the Church since the Second Vatican Council?
- What positions do women have and what roles do they play in the Church today?
- What is the future for women in the Church? What should be the agenda of engagement for the next half century?
Interested scholars are invited to submit a 100-200 word proposal for a panel, roundtable or paper by June 1, 2015, to email@example.com. A decision will be conveyed by June 15, 2015. More details below.
