Home From Mexico City!

I flew into home-sweet-home Philadelphia on Sunday evening, bringing my four-day academic excursion to Mexico City to a close. (As the photo to the left suggests, the excursion wasn’t exclusively academic — I had the opportunity to see visit some of the area’s most fascinating historical sites, including the ancient city of Teotihuacán!)

The “History, Protestantism and Identity in the Americas” conference was a great gathering, filled with fascinating paper presentations and opportunities for me to network with senior scholars in the field of North American religions.

Jared Burkholder, a fellow scholar of Anabaptism and a presenter at the conference, has written some thoughtful follow-up to the themes of the conference that you might be interested in reading. (He shares personal reflections on the event here and here, and has a nice post about my presentation here.) I should also say that Jared’s blog, The Hermeneutical Circle, is a top-notch site, and its focus on Anabaptism, Pietism, and American evangelicalism (among other topics) may be of interest to some of The Search for Piety and Obedience‘s readers.

For those interested in reading the paper I gave at last week’s conference, check it out here. (As I said before, a version of this paper adapted for a Brethren in Christ-specific audience will be published in the December 2011 issue of Brethren in Christ History and Life.)
