The Carolina Analytic Theology Workshop announces a general call for papers. Though this workshop is an invite-only event (since it aims intentionally to be a small workshop of around 25 scholars), we warmly invite you to submit an abstract for consideration. If your paper is selected, you’ll be included among those invited to attend the workshop. The scope of papers for the workshop is intentionally broad; we aim to help any project that’s relevant to the field of analytic theology. So, if you have a project like that, consider submitting an abstract! To do so, send an abstract of no more than 250 words to Deadline for submission is Monday, April 1. 

For more about the Workshop (including dates and location), do check out the Home page. And we look forward to welcoming you to Anderson University in May!


The 2024 Carolina Analytic Theology Workshop will take place from Friday, May 24 – Saturday May 25.


The 2024 workshop is scheduled to take place on the campus of Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina.


This is an invite-only workshop that will alternate each year between Anderson University’s Clamp Divinity School (Anderson, SC) and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Wake Forest, NC).

The purpose of the annual workshop is at least three-fold: 


The Workshop’s invite-only nature is designed, in part, so that we have on-hand between 20-30 participants reading and interacting with 8 papers. The four papers a day and restricted number of attendees allows for sustained reflection on the presented research with an intimately sized group of scholars. The vast majority of our attendees will be professional academics, while we also have a few spots reserved for a select group of graduate students, those whom we think would both enjoy and benefit from taking part in the exercise. Invitees will be philosophers, theologians, and biblical scholars. This, we hope, will help cultivate an environment of interdisciplinary engagement.

The papers will be read before the workshop (similar to how the old Logos workshop at Notre Dame was run).  All of these provisions allow for time and space for discussion without the feel of a normal conference, wherein ideas are treated often with a glancing blow rather than sustained thought and reflection. So, we aim genuinely to get new lines of research from scholars wishing to workshop their ideas.
