Jae-Im Kim: Divine Mystery IV, 1995, 52" X 73", mixed media on paper.
This international conference seeks to examine the migration, past and present, of liturgy – that is, liturgical practices, forms, and materials – across boundaries, whether geographic, ethnic, ecclesial, chronological, or other. The key question which frames this conference pertains to the nature of liturgical migrations and flows, their patterns, directions and characteristics. Since liturgical migrations are never divorced from their social and cultural contexts, the conference will recalibrate for the twenty-first century the older work on liturgical inculturation, and bring insights on historical migrations to bear on contemporary globalizing liturgical flows.
