HESED 2024: “History/Whose Story? Reclaiming Our Stories”
Our theme for this year’s lectures is “History/Whose Story? Reclaiming Our Stories”. “Popular” history has decentered important voices of people of color, telling history in a way that amplifies the story of the oppressor and silences the voices of the oppressed. From this distorted framework have come a myriad of assumptions, practices, and policies that harm the “least of these,” oftentimes supported by theology. This conference serves as a platform to explore, revive, and celebrate the wholeness of human history by reclaiming obscured stories, perspectives, and cultures that have been underrepresented in mainstream discourse as a result of both oppressive and suppressive powers. In reclaiming these stories, we become a people who bring about hesed in our communities.
