CALL FOR PAPERS: LOEWE-Workshop for Young Scholars: “Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period” (MPIER, Frankfurt a.M, 28 February-1 March 2013)

What: LOEWE-Workshop for Young Scholars:“Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period"
Where: Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History, Frankfurt am Main
When: 28 February-1 March 2013
Deadline: 15 November 2012

The past decade has seen an increasing interest among legal historians, jurists, philosophers, theologians and historians of economic thought in canon law and moral theology in the early modern period, e.g. the School of Salamanca. Therefore, the LOEWE-Junior Research Group would like to invite young scholars working in these fields to the Max-Planck-Institute for Legal History for a workshop and dialogue among peers.

The workshop will be organized from 28 February through 1 March 2013 at the Max-Planck-Institute for Legal History in Frankfurt am Main. The main idea behind the workshop is to bring together doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers working on dispute settlement in the early modern period, late scholasticism, canon law, moral theology or similar topics. The workshop is intended to be international and interdisciplinary in nature, so that a dialogue which goes beyond national and disciplinary frontiers can be created. Participants will have 30 minutes to present their research, followed by an open discussion of half an hour.

Candidates are invited to apply for the workshop until 15 November 2012. Travel expenses and accommodation will be covered by the organization. Please send a CV along with a short description of your research project to Dr Wim Decock, LOEWE Research Group Leader ( ). Presentations can be made in German or in English. For further questions and enquiries, do not hesitate to contact Dr Wim Decock.

To foster dialogue among participants, successful applicants will be expected to submit a paper or at least a detailed table of contents and an abstract of their research project by 1 February 2013.
