In March Project scholar Colleen
McDannell spoke with students and faculty at Columbia Theological Seminary
about the interpretation of photographs, and how photographs can help clergy and
congregations better the church's past.
"Lived Religion" will be the theme of The College Theology
Society's 1999 annual convention, to be held at St. Norbert's College in Wisconsin June
2-7, 1999. David Hammond will be editing the annual volume of papers from the convention.

Members of the Project's advisory committee met in March to help plot out future
directions for the Project's work. Areas of particular interest include teaching resources
and interpretive materials for local congregations. The next newsletter will have more
details on these initiatives.
The Project's scholars will meet at the end
of May in Colorado Springs for their annual gathering. They will share chapters and
reflect on their work.
The Project is organizing a panel for the November meeting of the American Academy of
Religion in Orlando on the theoretical issues behind its work. Some of the scholars
will be presenting their work at that meeting and at the American Society of Church
History in Washington. More details are forthcoming.
