From 25 to 30 August 2016 we had the pleasure of hosting 80 international scholars in the biannual conference of European academics teaching ecumenism. We invited Marcel Hénaff to be our keynote speaker (see picture). The event took place in Sofia, a beautiful Orthodox conference centre in Helsinki.
During the Fall 2016 we negotiated a continuation grant to our CoE Reason and Religious Recognition. We managed to keep the same level of funding from 2017-2019. We also had an international open call for these positions, and recruited 8-9 scholars from among 80 good applicants. My own book Recognition and Religion appeared from the OUP and our scholars published the thematic issue “Religious Recognition” in de Gruyter’s Open Theology journal. The CoE website will report more on these persons, publications and past and forthcoming events. See more under the links above.
