Theology and Continental Philosophy Print

Call for Proposals

This Group invites proposals on the following topics:

  • Giorgio Agamben’s The Kingdom and the Glory: For a Theological Genealogy of Economy and Government (trans. by Lorenzo Chiesa and Matteo Mandarini, Stanford University Press, 2011) — for a cosponsored session with the Theology and Religious Reflection Section
  • For a cosponsored session with the Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Group — on the relationship between Kierkegaard and contemporary French thought. In view of the comment in Fear and Trembling (Penguin, 1986) that no generation goes further than another and every generation shares the same task of faith, how is Kierkegaard’s thought related to that of contemporary French thinkers?
  • Affect, (bodily) practice, being/becoming, and/or recognition
  • The notion of archives
  • The notion of world

As always, we welcome proposals for other topics of interest to our members in continental philosophy and theology.


This Group seeks to further discussions at the intersection of post-Kantian philosophy in its various permutations with historical and contemporary theological reflection. While we remain centered on continental European thought on the philosophical side, the term “theology” in our parlance extends to critical reflection on a range of religions worldwide. Contact the Program Unit Chairs if you seek further information on the Group’s activities.
