Call for Proposals

A number of prominent philosophers and theorists located in the United States have found in contemporary continental philosophy fruitful resources for their own work (for instance, J. Caputo, R. Kearney, J. Butler, and G. C. Spivak). We invite proposals for papers or panels that consider and/or exemplify the significance of these stateside thinkers for theology. We also welcome proposals on other topics in continental philosophy and theology, especially those that focus on emerging figures in continental thought.


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.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee Members until after final acceptance or rejection.
