ISAAC 6th Symposium - A Christian Vision of Belonging: Race & Gender


Initially, ISAAC's Symposium began in 2009 to raise Asian North American (ANA) consciousness in the academy and the church across diverse ANA ethnicities. As Yuri Ichioka (who coined the term "Asian American" and established the Asian American Center at UCLA) did, we also dreamt of spreading ANA consciousness among Christians who lack shared knowledge of ANA stories and histories.

Thankfully, many more ANA initiatives have emerged since 2009.  Therefore, ISAAC's symposium is taking our mission to the next step of "Not Just Us." The 6th Symposium is designed to engage African American and Asian American experiences of race and gender that involve both the particulars  and universals of our yearning for belongingness and inclusive community. 

Objectives of this symposium:

  • To engage in conversation with Asian American theologians and practitioners.
  • To investigate and invest in the complex relationships between Asian American Christians, Asian American churches, and predominantly western seminary education.
  • To challenge and construct Asian American theologies for the church.

Symposium's format:

  • Plenary
  • Panels
  • Breakout/Workshop sessions
