The British Society for the Philosophy of Religion
2011 Conference "God, Mind and Knowledge"
Call for Papers
The next conference of the British Society for the Philosophy of
Religion will be at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford from Wednesday 14th –
Friday 16th September 2011. The theme for the conference will be God,
Mind and Knowledge. The plenary speakers will be John Cottingham,
Anthony Kenny, Robin Le Poidevin, and Charles Taliaferro.
If you would like to present a paper, please send an abstract of a
maximum of 300 words to me (email@example.com) by the end
Papers need not be on the theme of the conference, although a
preference may be displayed towards selecting those that are, other
things being equal. Obviously time and space at the Conference will
be limited, so we shall have to be selective, even allowing for the
fact that we plan to run parallel sessions and encourage people
presenting papers to keep to half-hour slots.
In order to keep to the tight timetabling required to permit
participants to hear (the whole of) as many papers as possible,
papers should take ideally fifteen minutes and an absolute maximum
twenty minutes to deliver, leaving ten minutes or so for discussion.
