CfP: Eighth Annual RefoRC Conference 2018

CfP: Eighth Annual RefoRC Conference 2018

24-26 May 2018, University of Warsaw

The Reformation was closely tied to the renovation of educational models from its very beginning. By questioning the model of the medieval university and establishing new pedagogical solutions, early modern scholars and teachers shaped subsequent generations of clergy and laity, enabling them to work for their local communities and engage in the public sphere. Often these educational agendas went well beyond changes in curricula and were oriented towards much deeper goals, such as the shaping of confessional identity or the achieving of universal religious peace through the advancement of learning. As one of the leading research and educational institutions in Poland and East-Central Europe, the University of Warsaw is the perfect venue to ask further questions about the complex relations between early modern religious and pedagogical reforms. The plenary papers will offer a multi-faceted approach to this topic and will be accompanied by a series of short papers discussing all kinds of subjects related to the history of the Reformation. The aim of the conference is thus to broaden and contextualize the intersections between religious and educational reform.

Short Papers, Panels, and General Attendance:

The conference is open to individual short paper presentations (20-minute presentations) and to thematic sessions of two or three short papers. While we encourage papers on the conference theme, papers can also focus on all disciplines related to the sixteenth-century Reformations, such as philosophy, law, history, theology, etc., independent of the theme of the plenary papers.

Short paper proposals are welcome before March 1, 2018.

The language of the conference is English, but also papers in French and German will be welcomed.
