“Engaging Particularities XI: New Directions in Comparative Theology, Interreligious Dialogue, Theology of Religions, and Missiology”
BOSTON COLLEGE, MARCH 22-24, 2013
In keeping with the 1995 General Congregation of the Society of Jesus’ initiatives on interreligious dialogue, the U.S. Jesuit Assistancy for Mission and Interreligious Dialogue and the Boston College Theology Department announce their ninth annual graduate student conference in the areas of comparative theology, inter-religious dialogue, theology of religions, and missiology. This conference is open to graduate students at Jesuit institutions and other schools of higher education. Undergraduates whose work comes highly recommended by faculty advisers will also be considered.
We are currently accepting proposals on themes from various disciplinary perspectives (ethics, systematics, history, scripture, philosophy, etc.) in the four areas of comparative theology, inter-religious dialogue, theology of religions, and missiology. Proposals may be submitted for presenting individual papers or group panels — consisting of the panel’s topic, list of presenters, and the papers’ themes.
To submit a proposal, please email an abstract of no more than 250 words to Timothy Carey by Dec. 10, 2012. Please include your contact information, your institution and program, and the category into which you are submitting your proposal (comparative theology, inter-religious dialogue, theology of religions, or missiology). Some funds are available for participants to help supplement travel expenses.
For information or questions, contact Timothy Carey.
