CHC is proud to announce that Mrs Karenne Hills from the School of Social Sciences will present a paper at the Summer Institute on Theology and Disability 2015 conference in Atlanta, USA on May 26-30, 2015. Karenne has a growing research profile in the area of disability and has presented at a number of national and international conferences on the subject of spirituality, sexuality and disability in the past two years.
The international conference to be held in Atlanta is one of the few worldwide which focuses on the topic of disability theology and brings together experts in the field to disseminate emerging knowledge regarding this neglected research area. Her paper which is entitled Spirituality and people with a disability in the context of human sexuality explores historical religious and societal attitudes to sexuality and provides an alternative biblical perspective which encompasses a fresh look at the God inspired purpose of sexuality as a valued ingredient of the human experience, including people with disabilities.
CHC congratulates Karenne for her valuable contribution to the disability research field and wishes her a safe trip and every blessing as she engages in this important event.
