Beggars for Heaven: The Inheritance of Jacques and Raïssa Maritain
MBIT Day Conference – Wednesday 13 March 2024 – CALL FOR PAPERS

A day conference open to scholars, students, lay and religious; to appraise the spiritual and intellectual inheritance of Jacques and Raïssa Maritain.

Papers are welcome in any area relating specifically to Jacques or Raïssa Maritain, or to their unique complementarity. The conference aims to explore the legacy of the Maritains very broadly, emphasising ways in which their work still addresses the cultural, political, and theological spheres, in the academy and the Church. We intend that this conference is pervaded by the scholarly, yet friendly and convivial spirit of the Maritains.

Confirmed speaker: John G Trapani Jr., Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Walsh University; author of Poetry, Beauty and Contemplation: the Complete Aesthetics of Jacques Maritain, President of the American Maritain Association 2001 and 2006-2012.

Please submit proposals or abstracts of up to 500 words to Dr Christopher Grey by 31/01/24. To this email

Final papers should be no more than 25 minutes reading time, allowing for 10 minutes of discussion. Postgraduate student submissions are especially encouraged.

We should like to accommodate as many papers as possible; presenters will be notified by the end of January.
The full conference schedule will be published subsequently.
