LMU’s Huffington Ecumenical Institute will be hosting a two-day symposium at LMU on March 5-6 on the theme Women and Church, East and West. Leading women scholars, Orthodox and Catholic, will discuss the role of women in their churches.
The Huffington Ecumenical Institute is offering two prizes for the best student essay on the topic of “Women and Church at the Beginning of the 21st Century,” to be written in response to the Symposium. Essays should be between 1500 and 2000 words.
The best undergraduate essay will be awarded $500 and the graduate essay $1000. The prize-winners will be announced at a reception to take place at LMU on April 17. The winning essays will be published on the Huffington Ecumenical Institute website, and considered for publication in the edited collection of papers from the Symposium.
