Click here to pre-register for the conference.

Recently, Community of Christ has experimented with new ways of conducting the business of World and National Conferences. Historically, how have decisions been made in the various churches descending from the movement led by Joseph Smith, Jr.? How has "common consent" been variously understood and practiced? What are the implications of future trends for the processes of deliberation shaping policies and theologies of authority?

Theme: MORMON BODIES: LITERAL, METAPHORICAL, DOCTRINAL

Deadline for first-round consideration: Extended to 17 April 2013

Click here to see the Call for Papers and a description of the 2013 theme.

We especially encourage proposals that focus on this year’s theme: MORMON BODIES: LITERAL, METAPHORICAL, DOCTRINAL.
One of Mormonism’s most distinctive attributes is the emphasis on embodiment, which is not merely a condition of mortality but a crucial step in the journey to become like god, who “has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s” (D&c 130:22). Bodies are a primary way we learn about the world, a source of pleasure and temptation, something to be both enjoyed and tamed. How do LDS ideas about sex, sin, illness, food, pleasure, procreation, disability, parenthood, gender, and godhood affect our experiences of our bodies? How do doctrines of embodiment affect the way Latter-day Saints think, feel, and discuss their bodies?

Jesus had a mortal body, but we don’t talk about its suffering, preferring to dwell on his resurrected form. Heavenly Mother has a body, but we are discouraged from talking about hers. The bodiless Holy Ghost is constantly making our bosoms burn, or calling tears to our eyes, or standing us up and walking us to the podium during testimony meeting.

What metaphors are hidden in our obsession with bodies? How does our bodily approach to the world both expand and constrain our view of the divine? What is the relationship between spirit and body (is it only the body that must be tamed)? What paradoxes does our view of bodies force us to live in?

Furthermore, the “body of Christ” is a metaphor for the Church, but Mormons avoid emphasizing the literal body of Christ. Why are some literal bodies more important than others? Which bodies matter most?

Mormonism also encompasses many different collective bodies: various traditions tracing their roots back to Joseph Smith, and various governing bodies overseeing different communities or texts or enterprises. Finally, in its relatively short history, Mormonism has produced a remarkably rich and diverse body of thought and scripture. How do all these Mormon bodies collide against, control, nurture, or support one another?

We also welcome reflections on other topics and their intersection with Mormonism, as well as studies of historical and contemporary events and figures, news in the Mormon world, online communities, theological explorations, and Mormon cultural studies.

 Upcoming Events:

October 19, 2013  Our first 5K--Brigham's Butter Run! Registration for this event will open soon.

Sunstone Lecture December 11, 2011: Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

"Stirring up LDS History"
Relief Society sisters now have a new resource—a compact history of the Relief Society called Daughters of My Kingdom. The new manual, which is to be used from time to time for lessons given the first Sunday of each month, is not only unusual for its focus on women but for its chronological organization. Most Church manuals are organized thematically, offering little scope for discussing change over time.  Despite its uplifting narrative, this manual may require a new set of skills. As teachers of women’s history know, you can’t just “add women and stir.”
This event was held at the Gould Auditorium at the J. Willard Marriott Library on the University of Utah campus, 295 S 1500 East, Salt Lake City and was co-sponsored by the Marriott Library.

NOTE: CHANGE OF VENUE
Due to a scheduling conflict with our long-time venue in Salt Lake, the 2011 August symposium is moving to the  Weber State University campus in Ogden, UT. All symposium sessions and workshops will be in the Shepherd Union building at WSU.
We regret the inconvenience this change of venue will cause and are doing everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible for you.
Meeting on a university campus makes many amenities available to you that we could not otherwise offer--including half day child care, the Union food court, grill, and convenience store, Starbucks, meals from top-notch campus catering, the on-site WSU Bookstore, inexpensive dorm accommodations, and comprehensive AV equipment and technical support in every meeting room.
To see a WSU campus map, click here.
HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS
We have arranged to have a block of discounted hotel rooms at the Ben Lomond Suites Historic Hotel in downtown Ogden to provide accommodations for Symposium attendees.
Rates are $87/night (single), $94/night (triple) and $101/night (quad), plus tax and includes complimentary breakfast.
The guest rooms in our block have either one King or two Queen sized beds and are equipped with microwave, mini fridge, hairdryer, and coffee maker. There is complimentary high speed wireless Internet throughout the hotel.
Guests must book before July 20, 2011 to secure the discounted rates. To make reservations, call the hotel directly at (801) 627-1900.
Other downtown hotels (Ogden Marriott, Comfort Suites, Holiday Inn Express) or hotels farther from downtown may also have availability during our event.
WSU HOUSING
Low-cost dorm rooms are available for rent during the symposium through Weber Stave via this link:https://secure.touchnet.com/C20249_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=23&CATID=53

ONSITE CHILD CARE AT WSU
We’ve arranged to have WSU provide half-day onsite child care for children ages 2-9 at the Symposium during the afternoon sessions (2:00-6:00 pm). There are a limited number of slots open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Child care is available by reservation through WSU’s online system:
https://secure.touchnet.com/C20249_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=23&CATID=53
There is no charge for children enrolled in child care; however, WSU requires parents to complete a registration packet for each child in advance with emergency contact numbers, health and immunization history, and physician contact information. Register online for childcare and the packet will be emailed to you to fill out and return.
PARKING INFORMATION
Parking for Symposium attendees is available free of charge in lot A2 on weekdays and weekends (north of the Student Union) and in lot A10 on Saturday only. The closest handicapped parking is in the parking lot (PPL) just south of the Student Union; there is no charge for parking if your vehicle has state-issued handicapped tags or placards. Please see the campus map on page 39 of the Preliminary Program for parking lot and building locations.
To see a WSU campus map, click here.
TRANSPORTATION
We are working out the details for a WSU shuttle to provide service between downtown Ogden/25th Street hotels, the FrontRunner station, and WSU campus during peak times/meal breaks on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the Symposium.
SLC AIRPORT/OGDEN and OGDEN/SLC AIRPORT
If you need transportation between Salt Lake International Airport and Ogden UT--especially on Sunday when there is no public transportation running--we’ve made arrangements with a local shuttle company to provide transportation service August 3-7, 2011.
To make a reservation on a shared shuttle, contact CITY EXPRESS TRANSPORTATION at 1-866-385-2489, visit their website, www.airportexpressutah.com, to fill out and submit a reservation form online, or contact the City Express manager, amir@cityexpresstransportation.com .
The cost is $45 per person each direction on a shared shuttle. NOTE: Shuttle reservations MUST be made AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE. Otherwise the $45 negotiated price will not apply.
Shuttle bus service between Salt Lake City and WSU is proving to be quite costly. Since there are several public transportation options available weekdays, including FrontRunner commuter train service and UTA express buses, we encourage symposium attendees to use public transit.
Find information on FrontRunner commuter train schedules here:

The 2011 Restoration Studies/Sunstone Midwest Symposium: A Call for Papers
Sponsored by JWHA, the Community of Christ Seminary and Sunstone
Plan to participate in the fourth annual Restoration Studies & Sunstone Midwest    Symposium in Independence, Missouri, at the Graceland University Independence  Campus on April 15-16, 2011.
We will explore the theme: “A Woman’s Place…” Ideas, Impacts, and Experiences of Restoration Women. Women make up half or more than half the membership of churches, but their roles and impacts have sometimes been undervalued and underappreciated. This year, we hope you will help us consider how women have shaped the church, from theological thought and ideas to practices and the lived church experience. How have women impacted the Restoration and Christianity in general, and the Community of Christ and LDS Church in particular?
