THEOLOGICAL CONFERENCE IN TORONTO: CALL FOR PAPERS

TST What Matters Poster Final-page-001

On May 7-8th 2020, the Toronto School of Theology (TST) is hosting a conference concerning:

What Matters? On Value and Valuing

Call for Papers

What is value? How do we come to value what we value? At multiple moments in any given day, individual and collective action is influenced by the mechanisms of valuing, even when—or perhaps especially when—those mechanisms are invisible to us.

For this conference we invite papers and panel proposals that move beyond simple descriptions of values and instead address: (1) how value is made and maintained in both contemporary and other historical moments, or (2) the effects and implications of these value systems upon society, culture, philosophy, and/or theology. 

We especially invite attention to the means of valuation in the following spheres: the environment, human beings, economic structures and consumption, Moral Foundations Theory, and the social and political mechanisms that impinge on value. Paper and/or panel proposals may highlight a neglected mechanism of valuing, offer original critiques of those that are accepted, or explore means of generating value in new ways.

We invite proposals for both individual papers and full panel presentations. Papers will be allotted 30 minutes (of which 5-10 should be reserved for questions). Panels will be allotted 2 hours and may take a variety of formats.

All paper proposals should include a 300-word abstract with your name, institution, and contact information. Panel proposals should provide the names of all participants and a 300-word description of the panel’s overall theme and format.

The deadline for proposals is February 21, 2020.

Proposals should be submitted to conference@tst.edu.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact:
