CFP - Logos 2020 - Narrative, Personhood, and the Self

Call for Papers/Abstracts

Logos 2020

May 28-30 at the University of Notre Dame

Narrative, Personhood, and the Self

Issues concerning “the self”—its nature, our knowledge of it, mechanisms for transforming it, and much else besides—are historically central and currently active areas of research in philosophy, theology, and psychology.  An increasingly important idea in all three disciplines is the view that narrative is somehow essential to the self and intimately connected with key aspects of the life and development of a person. Narrative, or the activity of constructing narratives, has been credited with all manner of different roles in our lives, from contributing to positive outcomes in the wake of trauma, to helping us make sense of and find meaning in our own actions and other events that make up our lives, to unifying our consciousness and explaining important aspects of our agency, to constituting us as persons. The 2020 Logos Workshop will bring together philosophers, biblical scholars, and theologians to discuss these and related issues about personhood, the self, and the role narrative might play in the construction and transformation of the self.

To have your paper considered for discussion at Logos 2020, please submit an abstract of the paper or the paper itself no later than October 15, 2019. Other things being equal, preference will be given to those who submit full papers by the deadline. We will let you know by December 1, 2019 whether your paper has been provisionally accepted. Full acceptance will be conditional on submission of the full reading version of the paper by April 15, 2020. It is expected that papers presented at the Logos workshop will be works in progress that can benefit from the group discussion. Consequently, we ask that authors not submit papers that will be published before the conference has ended.

Please send Abstracts or Full Papers to:  logos@nd.edu. (Please ensure that they are prepared for blind review).
