2020-2021 C. Henry Smith Peace Lectureship
The C. Henry Smith Trust Directors have announced the 46th annual C. Henry Smith Peace Lecture. A committee composed of the Directors of Peace Studies and Academic deans of Goshen College and Bluffton University will select a scholar to prepare and present a peace lecture in the colleges and churches during the 2020-2021 academic year. The C. Henry Smith Peace Lectureship is interpreted broadly to include related media through which the peace witness can be communicated, such as drama, story and visual art as well as a more formal lecture. The lectureship should highlight a distinctive Anabaptist peace perspective. The deadline for completed application submission is Monday, Feb. 3, 2020. The announcement, application and proposal guidelines can be found at: myBluffton / resources / faculty resources.
