The 2018 Conference will be held in Bologna from Monday 5th to Thursday 8th March. The program will be composed of plenary (lectiones magistrales and roundtables) and working sessions (panels and papers).
Lectiones magistrales will be held by: Andres Winroth (Yale University); Philip Reynolds (Emory University); Risto Saarinen (University of Helsinki); Else Marie Wiberg-Pedersen (Aarhus University); Mona Siddiqui (University of Edinburgh); John Zizioulas (Thessaloniki School of Theology); Christoph Markschies (Humboldt-Universität Berlin) and many others.
Three roundtables will be convened on the topic of ‘Change and Religion in Europe’, and on the figures of Aristotle and Moses.
On Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th, the Conference will host an international Moot Court Competition in Law & Religion, organized in cooperation with ICLARS — International Consortium for Law & Religion Studies. Teams from within and outside Europe will argue a case before either/both the European Court of Human Rights and the Supreme Court of the United States. Pre-eminent scholars and actual judges from both jurisdictions will sit as judges of the two Courts.
