Update on Mystical Theology & Continental Philosophy Conference: Date Changed

Due to unforeseen circumstances the organizers of the Mystical Theology & Continental Philosophy conference have had to change the date of the conference. A message from Simon Podmore is below followed by a link for the PDF of the updated CFP.

‘Due to the larger than anticipated level of interest in the conference some logistical issues have arisen. Effectively this means that in order to accommodate the high interest it now looks like we will have to reschedule the conference from January 2014 to 11-13 July 2014. I am very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause but I hope that the conference would still be of interest for you as we would like you to join us.

There are actually several significant advantages to moving the conference from January to the summer. For one, it will enable us to accommodate everyone together on campus, which should make for a much more coherent, and sociable, event. In addition, it will enable a larger and more inclusive conference.
As a result, the call for papers has been extended to 30th September 2014, if you are interested in submitting a proposal. In the meantime, thank you very much for bearing with us  – and thank you for your interest in what promises to be a valuable conference.
With many thanks and best wishes
Simon’

    Think this has been changed again – I’ve received an email saying that the conference is now one week later – 11-13th July.

  2. Anthony Paul Smith Says:

    Oh, yes, I had copied the wrong email. Corrected. Thank you!

  3. David Miller Says:

    As noted by a member of the Continental Philosophy page on Facebook, I imagine the CFP deadline is actually Sept. 2013 rather than 2014.

    Thanks so much for posting this – and for doing so again! I’m sorry for the confusion. The final change of date was due to an admin error (not my fault for a change!). We’ve had some really great proposals and hope for even more. The conference will also follow on from the Leeds Medieval Congress (http://www.leeds.ac.uk/ims/imc/imc2014_call.html) which will have a medieval mysticism dimension. Perhaps this ‘2-for-1′ opportunity may encourage some to make the trip from further afield…
