With the gift of this history and in the spirit of its unrealized potential, the Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquia intensify movement between and beyond the fields of religion. A multivocal discourse of theology takes place in the interstices, at once self-deconstructive in its pluralism and constructive in its affirmations. Hosted annually by Drew University’s Theological School, the colloquia provide a matrix for such conversations, while Fordham University Press serves as the midwife for their publication. Committed to the slow transformation of religiocultural symbolism, the colloquia continue Drew’s long history of engaging historical, biblical, and philosophical hermeneutics, practices of social justice, and experiments in theopoetics.
