Why Homosexuality? Religion, Globalization, and the Anglican Schism, an interdisciplinary conference organized by Yale’s LGBT Studies committee, will take place on October 17, 2009. From the LGBTS website:

Rather than restaging the arguments for and against the ordination of openly gay clergy, this day-long conference analyzes the threatened schism in the Anglican Communion in order to examine wide-ranging and interrelated issues of religion, secularism, globalization, nationalism, and modernity.  How and why, we ask, has homosexuality come to serve as a flash point for so many local and global conflicts?

Yale requests that participants pre-register here.
