ISAE Closing Events

As many of you know, the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals (ISAE) is closing up shop. The final events will take place tomorrow and Friday. On Thursday, October 30, there will be a panel discussion on “A Movement for the 21st-Century: The Future of Evangelicalism” (participants including David Bebbington, Nathan Hatch, Mark Hutchinson, Mark Noll, and Grant Wacker) at 7:00PM in the Barrows Auditorium of the Billy Graham Center, that is free and open to the public.

On Friday, October 31, I will also be attending the following meetings:  

9:00 AM:   The ISAE: A Retrospective on the Institute and Its Work

10:35 AM:  Nathan Hatch will be speaking in the Wheaton College chapel service (Edman Chapel)

1:30 PM:   The Funding and Hosting of Evangelical Scholarship
3:30 PM:   Scholarship on Evangelicals:  Persistent Dilemmas and New Avenues (Participants:  Darren Dochuk, Tommy Kidd, Steven P. Miller, Molly Worthen, Grant Wacker—chair)

While it is sad to see the ISAE closing, I am glad that the folks at Wheaton have gathered some of the finest historians to discuss the future of American evangelicalism.
