Call for Abstracts: The Tyndale Fellowship
Please see the following information about the 2023 Tyndale Fellowship conference in philosophy of religion. The EPS is working at building stronger ties with Tyndale, given our mutual commitments. To that end, we are working at making grant money available for overseas travel to our respective conferences each year. As you’ll see below, current EPS Vice President Paul Gould is the plenary speaker for the 2023 conference. Former EPS President Paul Copan is the Co-Chair, and will be the 2024 plenary speaker. This is also a great opportunity for Christian camaraderie, mutual support, and collaboration at the international level.
The Tyndale Fellowship plans to meet (in person) next year Wednesday 5th July 14:00 – Friday 7 July 2023 14:00 at the same venue as this year, High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon (https://www.cct.org.uk/high-leigh/high-leigh-conference-centre). The plan is, as this year, for Philosophy of Religion to meet concurrently with the other groups, so you may be able to pop into some of the other groups’ talks if you wish.
We are very pleased that Dr. Paul Gould (https://www.paul-gould.com/about/) of Palm Beach Atlantic University, Florida, has agreed to be our Tyndale Lecturer; title and topic to be confirmed. It may well be that, as this year, the Tyndale Lecture will be livestreamed and, perhaps also, made permanently available on the Internet.
Booking is not open yet, but we hope that it will open on 2nd December. Early-bird booking is expected to finish on 31st January. We expect that bursaries will be available, on the basis of need, for those struggling to raise the funds to travel to Hoddesdon.
If you’d like to give us a paper, please send an abstract (no precise word limit: aim for 250 words or so) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23rd November. (The paper itself should be aimed to last for about 30 minutes.) The abstract can be on any area of philosophy of religion, broadly construed. We are happy to receive submissions from any stream of philosophy (analytical, continental, historical, feminist…) and from people of any faith or none. If you do not expect to be able to be present in person, please feel free to submit an abstract making it clear that you are able to present only on-line. Equally, it’d be helpful if you could confirm that you expect to be in person, if that is the case. We intend to give preference for in-person talks, but may, as this year, be able to accommodate a couple of on-line talks.
