40th Anniversary Celebration and Conference CFP

13-16 September 2018 at Calvin College

Founded in 1978 by a handful of philosophers to promote fellowship among Christian philosophers and to stimulate discussion of issues which arise from the intersection of their Christian and philosophical commitments, the Society of Christian Philosophers has since grown to one of the largest professional philosophical associations in North America.

In honor of the 40th anniversary of its founding, and in place of the usual annual divisional conferences, the SCP will be hosting a single conference during 2018. Keynote addresses will be delivered by:

Nicholas Wolterstorff
J.L.A. Garcia
Christina Van Dyke
Andrew Chignell

Submissions can be on any philosophical topic, though papers focusing on the issues and challenges facing philosophers who are Christian are especially encouraged. Papers should be no more than 5000 words (exclusive of notes and bibliography). Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review and emailed to Phoebe Landrum. Individuals do not need to be members of the SCP to submit or to be on the program. The deadline for submissions is 17 February 2018.

Registration for the conference will be required. Online registration will open in spring of 2018.

If you are interested in receiving further email updates about the conference directly, please submit your name and preferred email address here.

The Society of Christian Philosophers and Calvin College are committed to accessibility. Workshop participants are more than welcome to email Kevin Timpe to discuss possible accommodations as needed.

This conference is co-sponsored by the Society of Christian Philosophers, Calvin College’s Philosophy Department, and the William Harry Jellema Chair in Christian Philosophy.
