CFP: Leibniz’s Theodicy Conference (Notre Dame)


This looks interesting and well-funded (accepted papers get full expenses paid) – I used Theodicy once in my philosophy of religion seminar, mixed reactions as you can imagine.

Leibniz’s Theodicy: Context and Content — Call for Papers

We invite scholars to submit papers for presentation at the Leibniz’s Theodicy: Context and Content. This conference, held on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the publication of Leibniz’s Theodicy, aims to explore this seminal work, the only book length treatise published by Leibniz in his lifetime. The conference will explore the contents, its fit within the Leibnizian corpus, its broader historical context, and its subsequent reception and impact as well as how the views expressed fit into the larger intellectual landscape of the period as described on the main conference page. Papers on any of these philosophical, theological, and historical topics will be considered, though they must not be under publication consideration at the time of the conference.

Expenses (including travel) will be paid in full for the papers selected for presentation. Those wishing to propose entries for consideration should submit a short abstract (350 word limit) of the paper no later than March 1, 2010. Accepted papers must be completed and submitted to the organizers no later than August 15, 2010 for pre-conference web posting. Submissions and inquiries should be sent electronically to cprelig.1@nd.edu.

Those wishing to participate in the conference as commentators or session chairs should notify the conference directors at cprelig.1@nd.edu. Such requests should be accompanied by an attached C.V.
