The American Theological Society, Midwest Division, founded in 1927 is a regional organization of scholars who are engaged in critical and creative examination of religious thought and its impact on faith and culture, and who write and teach in the fields of religious studies.

In its programs, the Society often reaches beyond the local members to invite international scholars and others from across the United States to present papers and to participate in the conversations of its semi-annual meetings.

The Midwest Division of the Society has convened semiannually since 1927 to receive scholarly papers on crucial issues of religion and culture. The Society meets twice a year—on the last Friday of April and the last Friday of October—at colleges, seminaries, and universities in greater Chicago area.

Executive Committee[edit]

The Executive Committee—elected by the Society to plan and administer its semiannual meetings—is composed of the President, Vice President, Member at Large, Secretary/Treasurer, the immediate Past President, and any Past President who can be present.

Membership of the current Executive Committee is:
