12th Annual Society for Ricoeur Studies Conference Call for Papers

NOVEMBER 2-4, 2018

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

The Society for Ricoeur Studies is pleased to announce the theme of the 2018 conference “Remembrance and Recognition”. The conference will be hosted by the Mount St. Mary’s Department of Graduate Religious Studies. We are pleased to announce that the SRS keynote speakers are Professor Kathleen Blamey (California State University, East Bay) and Professor Roger Savage (University of California, Los Angeles).

 

We welcome submissions that address the conference theme broadly construed: for example, remembrance or recognition ​in relation to Ricoeur and the history of philosophy, testimony and hope, freedom, the problem of evil, and so on. We also welcome submissions that address the influence of Ricoeur’s thought inside and outside the discipline of philosophy, such as but not limited to aesthetics, architecture, art practice, counselling, cultural studies, economics, education, feminism, health care, jurisprudence, literary theory, medicine, music, nursing, political science, psychiatry, religious studies, sociology, and theology.

 

Papers

Please submit an abstract of approximately 300-500 words without any author-identifying information. In your email, please include the paper’s title, the author’s name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, and email address. Abstracts and papers may be in English, French, or Spanish. Please note that finished papers should be no longer than twenty minutes when read aloud (roughly 3000 words).

 

Panels

Proposals for a panel discussion of a theme, a book, or an author related to Ricoeur are also welcome. The proposal should include a brief description (300-500 words) of the topic, the names of the panel members, and, as a separate document, the abstracts for each presentation (300-500 words). Panels will last for a period of 1 hour 30 minutes (or what comes to 3 x 20 minute presentations with 30 minutes of discussion). In your email, please include the panel’s title along with the panel members’ names, institutional affiliations, mailing addresses, and email addresses.

 

New Scholars and Graduate Students Roundtable

New scholars and graduate students are encouraged to send in an abstract (300-500 words) for a panel around the theme of the conference, or any other theme related to the work of Paul Ricoeur. We intend to ask scholars visiting the conference to act as respondents to the papers. Please send the abstracts to Dr. Marjolaine Deschênes (marjolaine.deschenes@gmail.com) no later than April 30, 2018.
