One of our summer seminar participants from last summer has published some of what she was working on at the seminar. Frances Howard-Snyder’s fictional piece, “Leap of Faith,” is now available here.
Applications are solicited for twelve research proposals each year to engage in research projects on the nature and value of faith. Winners of research awards will participate in a collaborative research group consisting of the winners of the twelve awards, two post-doctoral research fellows working with this project on the Nature and Value of Faith, and will be led by Jonathan L. Kvanvig, Daniel Howard-Snyder, and Trent Dougherty. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2015. Details below the fold.
Associated with Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Religion are two prize competitions: The Sanders Prize in Philosophy of Religion (SPPR) and the OSPR Graduate Student Essay Prize (GSEP).
The winning entries for 2014 are:
SPPR Winner: Ross Inman, St. Louis University, “Omnipresence and the Location of the Immaterial”
GSEP: Dustin Crummett, University of Notre Dame, “Sufferer-Centered Requirements on Theodicy and All Things Considered Harms”
Congratulations to both on these well-deserved recognitions!
For our November conference, 13-16, in St. Louis, MO, at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. Selected presenters will have all expenses covered in order to participate in the conference. There is no deadline for the CFP, but we will be finishing our selections very shortly, so respond as soon as possible.
Available here, with an extended discussion of the Greek terms for doubt in the New Testament. Teaser: the terms are probably not best translated as “doubt”.
