We are pleased to have Dr. Christopher Brittain join us for the conference. Dr. Brittain is an experienced qualitative field researcher in theology and participated in the initial conferences that created the Ecclesiology and Ethnography network and a research agenda that draws together those working empirically and theologically. His recently published research focused on relations within the global Anglican Communion (Penn State University Press, 2018).
