The 2016 Lonergan on the Edge CFP is now available! Our theme this year is “The Spirit of Vatican I?” and we aim to explore Lonergan and other major figures in mid-Twentieth Century Catholic theology and philosophy not primarily in light of their influence on Vatican II, but the influence of Vatican I and the 19th Century upon them. On our panelists this year are Jennifer Newsome Martin (University of Notre Dame), Grant Kaplan (St. Louis University), and Jeremy Wilkins (Boston College). Our keynote speaker is Eric Mabry (Lonergan Research Institute/Regis College, University of Toronto). Proposals are due July 31st and topics outside the theme will be considered.
Also, don’t miss the call for the 4th Annual M. Shawn Copeland Presentation in Contextual Theology, an extended (45 minute) and funded (travel, lodging) presentation slot in the conference schedule reserved especially for the strongest proposal focusing on the relationship between Contextual Theologies and Lonergan Studies. If you wish for your proposal to be considered for the Copeland Presentation, please let us know.
