We organise a variety of events to promote research in global philosophy of religion
The details of these events will be published here in September 2020 when the project officially starts.
Conference 1: The Existence and Nature of Deities (University of Birmingham, UK, 2021)
Conference 2: Death and Immortality (Waseda University, Japan, 2022
Conference 3: Evil and Suffering in the World (University of Birmingham, UK, 2023)
We will convene seminars in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East for doctoral students and early-career researchers who wish to publish papers in English-speaking philosophy of religion journals. The following editors of leading philosophy of religion journals have agreed to contribute to this initiative.
Helen De Cruz, Executive Editor, Journal of Analytic Theology
Georg Gasser, Editor, European Journal for Philosophy of Religion
Ronald L. Hall, Editor, International Journal for Philosophy of Religion
Mark Murphy, Editor, Faith and Philosophy
Yujin Nagasawa, Editor, Religious Studies
At the seminars, these editors will offer overviews of their readership and submission processes. They will also explain appropriate topics for their journals and types of papers that have a strong chance of being published. They will also discuss effective ways of structuring and presenting papers and improving them in light of referees' feedback.
