This conference seeks to re-examine some fundamental philosophical and theological questions about death and immortality – Is it rational to fear death? Can we survive bodily death? Do faith and religious practice matter for grief and death? Is immortality desirable? and others.

The organisers welcome papers that take a philosophical approach to all aspects of death and immortality, including secular and diverse religious perspectives, as well as considerations from the fields of ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, anthropology, psychology, literature, and cognitive science and medicine.

Submissions are due by March 31, 2019. Additional details are available here.
