Participants in the Queering Liturgy seminar share work at the intersection of LGBTQ religious studies, queer theory and liturgical studies. We seek to discern and develop the ways in which queer sensibilities shape and transform the theological performance of faith communities within the context of worship. Our work includes: criticism and/or deconstruction of normative traditions, especially in regards to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, ability, class and their intersections; analysis of received liturgical theologies, practices and traditions with a "queer eye;" construction of liturgical theologies and practices based on the generative insights of queer theory; and the revision and creation of ritual practices in light of the particularities of LGBTQ lives.

The seminar will not meet on Saturday. We will meet on the pre-meeting day from 4-6:30 at Fandlangles in the Sheraton as well as on Friday at the scheduled times in our conference room (127). Friday evening dinner and discussion at Watershed, 1820 Peachtree NW. See attached schedule and contact Scott Haldeman for final details: shaldeman@ctschicago.edu.
