Call for papers: international conference in Belgium

A call for papers has been launched in relation to an international conference organised by research group Anthropos (KU Leuven) on Relation, Vulnerability, Love: Theological Anthropology in the 21st Century from 15-17 September 2016 in Leuven, Belgium. 
Describing the conference Anthropos say that: "Relation, vulnerability, love are three concepts we consider important for a theological anthropology in the 21st century. Moreover, it is a trilogy we read in crescendo. That is, the primacy of relationality leads us to understand vulnerability as a universal human condition that is the condition of possibility for both suffering and flourishing. Love is the Christian notion that indicates the deepest reality of such relationality and vulnerability as well as its eschatological destiny. A central concern is that these three notions not only indicate or characterize the content of theological anthropology but also have implications for how theological anthropology is to be done".
Keynote speakers/respondents at the conference are: 
  • Michael Banner (University of Cambridge, UK)
  • Brian Brock (University of Aberdeen, UK) 
  • Luigino Bruni (LUMSA University, Italy)
  • Maureen O'Connell (LaSalle University, US) 
  • Elizabeth O'Donnell Gandolfo (Wake Forrest University, US)
  • Paul Fiddes (Oxford University, UK) 
  • Jan-Olav Henriksen (Norwegian School of Theology, Norway)
  • Markus Mühling (Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany) 
  • Wonhee Anne Joh (Garrett – Evangelical Theological Seminary, US)
  • Elina Hankela (University of Helsinki, Finland) 
The call for papers is open now – DEADLINE 15 May 2016
