With Richard Swinburne as this year’s EPS plenary speaker.
Come be part of an exciting movement that is making a difference in the academy, the church, and the world! Mingle with like-minded thoughtful Christians and interact with leading Christian scholars.
Every year since 2001, the EPS has brought some of the brightest Christian thinkers and spokespersons to a local city of the U.S. in order to help people think Christianly about challenges to their faith. Joining us for this year’s conference will be Lee Strobel, Dr. Gary Habermas, Dr. William Lane Craig, Mark Mittelberg, Greg Koukl and many more.
Thirty speakers in keynote and multiple breakout sessions will present not only on standard topics in apologetics—arguments for God’s existence or evidences for Jesus’ resurrection. Our speakers not only cover “conventional” areas in apologetics, such as arguments for the existence of God or evidences for Jesus’ resurrection. They will also be addressing a diverse range of cutting-edge topics on the reasonableness and defensibility of Christianity.
Postcolonial theory is one of the most influential theoretical strands of our time and it has a profound impact on the study of various fields within Jewish Studies. Yet—with a few exceptions—its relevance for the study of Jewish thought has not been sufficiently addressed in scholarship. We would like to organize a panel around possible connections between Jewish thought and postcolonial theory for the upcoming AJS conference in Boston (December 2013).
The proposed panel will bring Jewish thought into dialogue with postcolonial theory: How does Jewish philosophy serve as the colonized other of general philosophy? What are the power-relations involved in different modes of dialogical thinking? To what extent do colonial fantasies, and critique of them, shape Jewish political theory? Can Jewish thinkers be considered as writing from a subaltern position? What is the meaning of debates on Jewish essence in a post-essentialist age?
We invite submissions that deal with these and other questions related to the theme. Please send 350 words abstract and a short biographical paragraph by April 21st to Yaniv Feller (firstname.lastname@example.org).
