CFP: Varieties of Continental Thought and Religion

CFP: Varieties of Continental Thought and Religion Conference (Link)

Varieties of Continental Thought and Religion
June 15-16, 2012
Ryerson University
Toronto, Canada 

Confirmed Speakers: John Caputo (Syracuse U.), Bettina Bergo (U. de Montreal), more to be announced in the near future.

We invite submissions from scholars and graduate students based in Canada and abroad on the topic of Continental Thought and Religion. The general theme of the conference is meant to reflect the variety of articulations of religion that have emerged in contemporary European thought. While the focus of the conference is continental thought, we nonetheless conceive the latter in an interdisciplinary manner (including literary theory, social and political thought, psychoanalysis, and religious studies). We also encourage submissions from people interested in exploring possible connections with analytic philosophy.
