The Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) in co-operation with the Institute for Mennonite Studies (IMS) is delighted to announce the relaunch of the Anabaptist Mennonite Scholars Network (AMSN).
The AMSN seeks to respond to the need for increasing communication around conference planning, special journal issues, and related items with a view not only to facilitating greater awareness and cooperation but also, and significantly, to expanding the conversation. In a very modest way, the AMSN seeks to nurture the conditions whereby we can break out of disciplinary, institutional, gendered, and geographic siloes that too often narrow our vision by fostering cross-disciplinary connections that intentionally include marginalized voices from across the street and around the world.
Email newsletters that feature a round-up of new calls for papers, conferences, lectures, employment opportunities, fellowships, scholarships, online resources, and more from our website will be circulated roughly 3–4 times annually.
We invite you to explore the already lengthy list of events, journals, and centres and to help us spread the word to those in your networks that may be interested. A sign up form can be found at the bottom of our website for those that wish to be added to our mailing list.
Importantly, we rely on an ever-expanding network of institutions and individuals to keep us apprised of what is happening and are always looking to add information of relevance to the Anabaptist Mennonite scholarly world around the globe. If there are events and/or other items that you are aware of, please let us know by sending us an email or by clicking on the "submit news and events" button below or on the AMSN website.
We are also in conversation with the emerging Global Anabaptist Education Networks and are working toward an AMSN event and/or workshop to coincide with the upcoming Mennonite World Conference (MWC) Assembly in Indonesia in 2022. Further details about this will be circulated in due course and we are excited about the opportunities to connect and gather with each other in-person.
If you have any comments or other feedback we would love to hear from you and we hope this resource will be useful in connecting Anabaptist Mennonite scholars around the globe.
