2nd Glasgow Philosophy of Religion Seminar
24-25, May 2012
The biennial Glasgow Philosophy of Religion Seminar provides a platform for discussion of work-in-progress in analytic philosophy of religion. Papers are invited on any topic within analytic philosophy of religion, broadly construed to include non-western traditions. Papers on comparative philosophy of religion are also welcome. The Seminar is organized by the Centre for Philosophy and Religion and will be held in the Philosophy Building, University of Glasgow . The precise schedule will be announced nearer the time, but it is anticipated that the event will run from 1.00 p.m. on the 24th May until 6.00 p.m. on the 25th May. Details will appear here as they become available.
If you would like your work to be considered for presentation at this event please email an abstract of between 300 and 500 words to Dr Victoria Harrison ( Victoria.Harrison@glasgow.ac.uk ) by 9th March 2012. Your paper should have a reading time of approximately 45-50 minutes. Please state on your submission if you are a graduate student. You will be informed of the decision by 31st March. Papers accepted for presentation will be considered for publication in Philosophy Compass, Blackwell’s fully peer-reviewed online philosophy journal.
We hope to re-schedule Professor Charles Taliaferro’s lecture which was cancelled last year. Please watch this here.
