In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

A C K N O W L E D G M E N T S This volume had its origins in the proceedings of the seventh Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium, which was held at Drew Theological School in November 2007. There would have been no TTC, however, much less a seventh one, without Catherine Keller, whose inaugural vision birthed the colloquium series and whose indefatigable intellectual energy has nourished it over the years. If the people perish without a vision, the vision itself perishes without material sustenance, and so neither would the colloquium have reached its seventh year without the steadfast support of Maxine Clarke Beach, Dean of Drew Theological School. Helen Tartar, Editorial Director of Fordham University Press, has provided material support of another sort; we continue to be grateful for the opportunity to publish the colloquium proceedings in the series that she created. Several Drew graduate students devoted significant amounts of time and energy to the organization of TTC7, none more than Elaine Padilla. The colloquium program was enriched by a splendid array of respondents, discussants, and student presenters whom we were not able to include in this volume: Virginia Burrus, Anne Daniell, Lynne Darden, Rose Ellen Dunn, Marion Grau, Peter Goodwin Heltzel, Ada Marı́a Isasi-Dı́az, Melanie Johnson-DeBaufre, Hyo-Dong Lee, Matilde Moros, Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Devin Lin Singh, H. Aram Veeser, Asher Walden, and Traci West. We are also grateful to Lydia York for assuming the daunting task of transcribing the extended public conversations with Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak that constituted the core of the event, and also for compiling the volume’s index. Most of all, we are grateful to PAGE ix ................. 17764$ $ACK 10-28-10 12:06:13 PS x 兩 a c kn o w le d g me n t s Professor Spivak herself—first, for risking a leap into what were, for her, uncharted waters; second, for the extraordinary affability and humility that she brought to the conversation; and third, for editing the transcript of her performance so promptly even while (as she explained in her accompanying missive) she was ‘‘on the run across Bangladesh.’’ May she long run and never falter.
