The Lonergan Society at Marquette University will be hosting the fourth annual Lonergan on the Edge graduate student conference on September 21st and 22nd (Friday-Saturday), 2012, on the campus of Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There will be no specific theme other than the general interest in Lonergan studies, and papers of any topic related to that interest will be considered. However, on the second day of the conference there will be a panel discussion on “Lonergan and Black Theology,” and papers related to that topic, as well as the intersection of Lonergan’s thought with political theology/philosophy, feminist theology/philosophy, and/or liberation theology, are especially encouraged.
Paper presentations will be a total of 30 minutes: 20 minutes of presentation, 10 minutes for discussion. Proposals should be prepared for blind review (i.e., no names on the paper itself, just the title) and submitted in the form of a 1-page, double-spaced abstract. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, July 9th, 2012. Submission results will be announced no later than Monday, July 23rd, 2012.
