Congresso Continental de Teologia - Updated Program

Update: The main speeches of the Congresso will be streamed at www.ustream.tv/channel/congresoteologicobrasil

The Fundación Amerindia, along with other Latin American theological organizations, is organizing the Continental Theology Congress to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Vatican II and the 40th anniversary of the publication of Gustavo Gutierrez's book,
A Theology of Liberation. The Congress will take place October 7-11, 2012 at the São Leopoldo/RS campus of Unisinos, Av. Unisinos, 950, Bairro Cristo Rei,CEP: 93.022-000, Brazil. The idea is not just to celebrate a memory, but also to propose new perspectives for a theology for our American continent.

The web site for the Congress is online. The URL is: http://www.unisinos.br/eventos/congresso-de-teologia/. While the web site is available in Portuguese, Spanish, and English, the draft program for the Congress is only available in Portuguese at the moment, so we are supplying an English translation below as a public service.

Interested persons may register online here. The conference fee for early registrants prior to 6/30/2012 is R$122 for professionals and R$87 for students. After 7/1/2012, the fee goes up to R$140 for professionals and R$105 for students. The web site also provides suggestions for accommodations and transportation.

The idea and impetus for the Congress came from the Fundación Amerindia, which invited other institutions to collaborate in the preparation and organization of the event. Among them are: Agencia de Informação Frei Tito para a América Latina (Adital, Brasil); Asociación de Teólogos de México (ATEM, México); Confederación Latinoamericana de Religiosos (CLAR, Colombia); Instituto Teológico Pastoral para América Latina (Itepal, Colombia); Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (PUJ, Colombia); Red Teológico-Pastoral (Guatemala); Sociedade de Teologia e Ciências da Religião (Soter, Brasil).

These organizations invited Unisinos to host the Congress through the Instituto Humanitas Unisinos (IHU Brasil).
