Call for papers 5th European Conference on Neo-Calvinism

NEO-CALVINISM AND EUROPE:
RELIGION, NATION, CULTURE
5th European Conference on Neo-Calvinism
Leuven, Belgium
29-31 August 2018

Theme

At present, Europe – in its modern globalised form – is faced by numerous questions of profound significance. How will its identity and role in the world change in response to the resurgence of populist political leadership both within and beyond its own borders? How should it respond to Brexit, intra-European independence movements, and the ongoing significance of the (largely Muslim) migrant crisis?

This conference will focus on neo-Calvinism, as a theological and cultural tradition that developed in late-modern Western Europe, and aims to understand it vis-à-vis Europe in both historical and constructive senses. How did the architects of neo-Calvinism – the likes of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck – view the late-modern European identity? What did it mean to them that humankind consisted of different peoples and races? To what extent did they view Europe, as a culturally Christian continent, to have a unique geopolitical calling? How should those views be understood in our post-colonial context? What is the relation between religion and the idea of the nation? How have these neo-Calvinists, and more contemporary exponents of the neo-Calvinist tradition, considered the place of Islam in Europe? Does neo-Calvinism offer promising resources for human flourishing in a continent marked by a profound diversity of ethnicities, languages, cultures, forms of secularism, and religion?

The conference will focus on the theological, ecclesial, philosophical, political, historical, social and cultural interactions between the two religions: in what ways did they approach each other? On which aspects did they continue to differ, and why? How could their relationship over a century and a half best be described?

Plenary speakers

Among others:

Dr. Matthew Kaemingk, Fuller Texas, Houston

Prof. Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena
