Center for the Study of Latino/a Catholicism

Grounding the Next American Century: A National Conference on Funding Latino/a Theological Research (2000)

This two-day meeting at the University of San Diego gathered Protestant and Catholic scholars engaged in Latino/a theological research, with representatives of funding agencies, publishing houses and university research administrators. The purpose of the meeting was two-fold: to examine present trends and needs of Latino/a theological research, and to discuss ways in which funding agencies (and publishing houses) might support Latino/a theological research of the highest quality.

Speakers at the conference included:

Ismael García (Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary)
James W. Lewis (The Louisville Institute)
Daisy L. Machado (Brite Divinity School)
Orlando O. Espín (University of San Diego)
Edwin Hernández (Pew Charitable Trusts)
Olga Villa Parra (Consultant on Latino/a Philanthropy)
Jean-Pierre Ruiz (St. John's University, NY)

This conference was fully funded by a grant from The Louisville Institute.
