Every couple of years, the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Spirituality honors a distinguished scholar that has significantly contributed to the academic discipline of spirituality. Past honorees include Dr. Bernard McGinn (2018) and Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI (2020).

This November, we have the honor of hosting a conference in celebration of a globally recognized woman who helped define the contemporary field and whose work is foundational in understanding the contemporary landscape of the discipline.

Join us in person or online as we listen to Dr. Schneiders as well as a diverse gathering of voices who have built upon her work. We will also host two critical conversations discussing the history of the field and where some next generation scholars envision possibilities for its future.
