What did deacons do?

May 12th – 14th 2020 in Joensuu, Finland

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 25 avril 2019

 

The School of Theology (University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu) is planning the next international and ecumenical research conference on patristic understandings of diakonia. It will be the fourth such conference held. Our purpose is to continue the work of earlier symposia (2014, 2015, 2017), inspired by the Rome 2009 conference “Diaconia, diaconiae, diaconato”.
The topic is ‘What did deacons do?'. In this conference, we will be focusing on Late Antiquity, especially the 3rd and 4th centuries.
Most of the 2017 congress, along with some additional papers, was published by Mohr Siebeck as Deacons and Diakonia in Early Christianity: the First Two Centuries. (Deacons 2018). Our co-operating partners are Prof. Bart J. Koet (Tilburg), Dr. John N. Collins (Melbourne), Dr. Anni Hentschel (Würzburg) and Dr. Edwina Murphy (Sydney) as well as the Finnish Association for Research in Diaconia, Societas Patristica Fennica and IDC – Pro Diaconia Christi.
The conference will be held on May 12th – 14th 2020 in Joensuu, Finland.
The Call for Papers is now open (below and on one sub page).
The dead line is 25 April 2019.

22nd Biennial Symposium of the International Medieval Sermon Studies Society

“Conversions and Life Passages through the Mirror of Medieval Preachers”

Hospedería-Convento Santo Domingo in Caleruega (Spain)
17 July to 21 July 2020

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 30 mai 2019

 

Host: Linda G. Jones, Vice-President of the IMSSS
Organizing Committee: Linda G. Jones (Pompeu Fabra University), Bernard Hodel, O.P. (University of Fribourg), Oriol Catalán (Pompeu Fabra University), Adrienne Dupont-Hamy (Ph.D. Université Paris VII)

The past few decades have witnessed an extraordinary boom in the scholarship on inter-religious conversion. The old dichotomous models that privileged either the inner, subjective, affective, or psychological experience of the individual convert or the social, institutional, or ritual aspects of religious conversion have given way to more nuanced approaches that recognize not only that narratives of the experiences of individual converts must be historically and socially contextualized, but also that they play ideological and symbolic roles within society (Szpiech, 2013). Ideally, sociological and biographical or psychological perspectives should be combined since no one approach or discipline alone suffices to comprehend fully the phenomenon of conversion (Jindra, 2014). Conversion studies scholars have increasingly moved toward introducing comparative and global perspectives, acknowledging that the processes, experiences, and contributing factors of conversion differ from one religion to another, change over time or in response to inter-religious interactions, and are inflected by other factors such as gender, ethnicity, or social status (Fox & Yisraeli, 2017; Jindra, 2014; Rambo & Fardahian, 2014; Kimber Buell, 2005). Traditional images of passive converts and of conversion as a sudden radical change have given way to considering the convert as an active agent, and conversion as a lengthy process (Rambo & Fardahian, 2014). Finally, new themes have emerged as foci of study: alongside inter-religious conversion, scholars are paying more attention to phenomena such as intra-religious conversion, the intensification of one's own faith tradition, forms of resistance to religious conversion, “deconversion,” and conversion as a transition from one life passage to another—as opposed to one religious tradition to another.

« Tu arriveras au bord du fleuve Hybristès dont le nom ne ment pas :
garde-toi de le franchir, car traverser n'est pas sans danger. »
Eschyle, Prométhée enchaîné, 717-718
La mise en garde de Prométhée à Io le montre : en vertu de son sens étymologique, la transgression est un acte, le franchissement ponctuel d'une limite ou, au sens figuré, d'une norme, et ce geste est lourd de conséquences pour celui qui s'aventure à l'accomplir. Toutefois, le nom du fleuve (l'« Emporté ») l'associe à l'hybris : transgresser devient la preuve d'une démesure, le propre de celui qui, faisant fi des dangers et des avertissements, désobéit à ce qui a été édicté, le trait caractéristique d'un individu qui ne se conforme pas à l'ordre établi. Le conseil est donc particulièrement pertinent dans la bouche du héros enchaîné : Prométhée n'est-il pas le transgresseur par excellence, puni pour avoir dérobé le feu aux dieux et menacé l'ordre divin en le transmettant aux hommes ?

Cicero in Basel. Reception Histories from a Humanist City

Basel, 3–5 October 2019

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 28 April 2019

 

With the generous support of the foundation Patrum Lumen Sustine (PLuS) the Department of Ancient Civilizations of the University of Basel and the Société Internationale des Amis de Cicéron (SIAC) are jointly organising the international conference Cicero in Basel. Reception Histories from a Humanist City, Basel, 3–5 October 2019.
The conference Cicero in Basel aims at charting the presence of the statesman, orator, and philosopher M. Tullius Cicero in the cultural history of Basel, the city located in the border region between Switzerland, Germany and France. While the study of Classical receptions tends to focus on particular cultural forms and discourses, the scope of the planned conference is programmatically open. Cicero in Basel explores a broad spectrum of engagements with Cicero through the ages: from the manuscript tradition of his works, to Humanist editions and commentaries, up to the political debates and controversies of today. In this, Cicero in Basel will assess Cicero's impact on the formation of a specific idea of Humanism in Basel as well as Basel's role in Cicero's Nachleben. The aim of the conference is twofold: It seeks to contribute both to the study of Ciceronian reception and to further our understanding of the history and development of Basel and the regio Basiliensis. Indeed, we expect this critical survey of Ciceronian reception histories from Basel to shed light on the emergence and development of the specific idea of Humanism that to this day plays a fundamental role in the self-image and identity politics of the Humanistenstadt Basel.
