Coble Presents at Communal Studies Association Annual Conference

On October 1, Religion Lecturer Dr. Ann Coble gave a presentation titled “McKanan’s Camphill Communities: The Past Speaking to the Future” at the 2021 Communal Studies Association annual conference. The theme of the conference was “Sustainability, Justice and Inclusivity.”

Coble studied the Christian communal group called Koinonia Farm which was started by Clarence Jordan for her doctoral work, and she has participated regularly in this conference for more than 20 years. Although the conference usually takes place at a current or former communal site, such as a Shaker village, this year the meeting was online.
