HEAT2020: Salvation

 

Keynote speakers

 

Oliver Crisp, St. Andrews

Kate Kirkpatrick, King’s College London

 

In addition to the keynotes, the workshop will have approximately six slots for substantial papers and one or two sessions for shorter student papers. The papers should include discussion concerning any topic related to the locus of salvation such as theories of atonement, immortality, eschatology and afterlife or any other topic suitably connected with the main theme. Papers should be constructive and argumentative rather than merely historical or descriptive in nature, but grounding in traditional texts and discussions is desired. Ideally, the papers should have a clear argument that is being defended with the tools of analytic tradition in theology.

 

Please send an abstract as a .doc file (no PDFs) with a maximum of 700 words to Dr. Rope Kojonen (rope.kojonen@helsinki.fi) by the end of August 2019.

 

In addition to the abstract, please include your name, affiliation and email address in the same document as your abstract. We will let you know whether your abstract has been accepted by 15th of September 2019. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any bursaries.

 

Registration

The workshop is open for all and free of charge. Even if your paper is not selected for presentation, you are most welcome to join the discussion.

Accommodation

Hotel Arthur offers convenient accommodation next to the university. You are advised to book your room yourself (myyntipalvelu@hotelarthur.fi). By mentioning that you are part of the workshop (HEAT2020), you will be offered a discounted price.

HEAT 2020 is supported by the Centre of Excellence for Reason and Religious Recognition of the Academy of Finland.
