The project will host two summer workshops at the University of St. Thomas – Thursday, July 30th through Saturday August 1st, 2015; Thursday July 21stthrough July 23rd, 2016.

We have invited six distinguished philosophers and theologians to participate each year. We are calling for submissions now for the four final participant spots open for the 2015 workshop. We will make a similar call in January of 2016 for the 2016 workshop.  All selected participants’ attendance will be funded by the project. In addition, we are funding the attendance of two seminary instructors (of any religious affiliation). We are calling for seminary participant submissions now for the 2015 workshop.

Each of the participants will circulate a work in progress prior to the workshop. These papers will be pre-read by participants and the majority of the workshop will be devoted to intensive discussion of the papers.
