Samford religion professor and conference co-chair Scott McGinnis said the series is designed to provide an opportunity for scholars from across the disciplines to share ideas about teaching Christianity’s rich intellectual heritage to today’s undergraduates.
Conference organizers have issued a call for paper proposals designed with the non-specialist in mind, and which address incorporating Augustine in the classroom across academic disciplines. Possible proposal topics include, but are not limited to:
• teaching Augustine in the freshman core
• the interdisciplinary seminar
• literature and autobiography
• antiquity, the Middle Ages, modernity and post-modernity
• free will and determinism
• intellectual history
Proposals are due no later than May 16.
