Call for papers

On Saturday, 21st October 2023, Westminster College is hosting a day seminar, on behalf of the Cambridge Theological Federation, to celebrate and promote the academic research of our Black and Womanist Theologians. The name of the event, held during Black History Month, is ‘A Celebration of Black and Womanist Theologians at the CTF’.

We are inviting proposals for short (20 min) papers from current and former CTF students, to showcase their research and interests. This may include specifically Black and Womanist theologies but may also be broader in theme. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion.

To submit a proposal, please send a draft title and 250 word abstract by email to Dr Alison Gray ( by 12pm on Monday, 18th September. Please also include which CTF house you belong(ed) to, a few lines about your current studies and/or work, and your particular research interests to give some context to your proposal.

We are delighted that our keynote speaker will be the Revd Dr Tessa Henry-Robinson, the Moderator of the United Reformed Church’s General Assembly, Associate Tutor in Practical Theology at Westminster College and an alumna of the CTF.
