2016 Lonergan on the Edge CFP

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.

CFP is below:

M. Shawn Copeland Presentation in Contextual Theology

At last year’s Lonergan on the Edge, the Lonergan Society hosted a panel discussion on Lonergan’s thought and Black Theology. The panel consisted of Dr. M. Shawn Copeland of Boston College, Rev. Bryan N. Massingale of Marquette University, Dr. John Nilson of Loyola University in Chicago and two Marquette University doctoral candidates in theology, Duan Loynes, Sr. and David Horstkoetter. The panel was, to say the least, a rousing success. In light of the fruitful conversation, the Lonergan Society has organized a funded presentation at future Lonergan on the Edge meetings. The presentation is set out for papers engaging the intersection of Lonergan’s thought and contextual theologies. Attached below is the CFP we distributed this year. Though submissions for LotE13 have been closed for some time, if you have research that would be appropriate, please consider submitting a proposal next year. Information will be posted here and distributed via our e-mail list in Spring of 2014.
