Lonergan, Human Dignity & Culture - Lonergan on the Edge Graduate Student Conference 2024

at Marquette University, held Friday September 13th and Saturday September 14th, 2024 in Milwaukee, WI

Call for Papers:

Amid the so-called "culture wars" of politics, post-colonialism, globalization, multiculturalism, dehumanization, and the ideological debates at all levels of society, what can Lonergan's philosophy and theology contribute to these cultural clashes? For this year's Lonergan on the Edge Graduate Student Conference, we invite abstracts of no more than 500 words that explore the topics of culture and human dignity in Lonergan's theology, philosophy, and economics.

Submit your MS Word or PDF proposal as a one-page, double-spaced abstract prepared for blind review (i.e. no name on the proposal itself). Only one submission per student will be accepted. Regular paper presentations will be 30 minutes: 20 for presentation, 10 for Q&A.

Special consideration will be given to proposals that address this year's theme, though other proposals in Lonergan studies will also be considered.

Submission deadline: 31 July 2024

Please submit your proposed abstract to lonergansociety@gmail.com

Accepted proposals will be notified in early August.

All are welcome to attend, but we request proposals from current or recent (within the last five years) graduate students who have not yet received a Ph.D. We are also accepting panel proposals from groups of 2-3 students. If considering a panel, please indicate the panel theme and submit proposals together, following the blind review guidelines.
