As much as we would like not to have to ask for anything at all, we do have to deal with some expenses. Therefore, we asking for a $20 contribution toward the cost of the food and libations offered on Friday and Saturday nights, if you attend these events. This keeps costs low enough that we’re one of the cheapest conferences you’ll find, while still ensuring that we can get to know one another while having plenty of food and fun. We will be collecting that money beginning first thing on Friday, so please have it ready.

Directions to all off campus events are forthcoming…

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.

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.
