Biennial Conference on Moravian History and Culture
October 10-11, 2008
Moravian College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

This biennial conference is sponsored by Moravian College, the Moravian
Archives in Bethlehem, and the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of
Pietism at the University of Halle, Germany. The conference will examine
various aspects of the history and culture of the Moravians (also known
as Unitas Fratrum or Herrnhuters) within their context. Papers may span
a wide range of topics encompassing early 15th-century history of the
church in the Czech lands; the founding of the renewed Moravian Church
in Herrnhut, Saxony, in 1722; the establishment of a transatlantic
Moravian network and its preservation throughout the 18th and 19th
centuries up to more recent Moravian history in the 20th century. We are
interested in all contributions relating to current research in Moravian
history and culture, but we especially invite papers regarding the
following themes:
1. The Origin of Subjectivity in Autobiography and Biography (Moravian
Lebensläufe or memoirs)
        2. The Encounter with Foreign Worlds
        3. Emotions in Rituals and Practices
        4. Transatlantic Networks
        5. Moravians in Comparative Contexts: Pietism, Art, Architecture, Gender
        6. The Historical Self-Concept of the Moravians
