Theme: Maritain Today – After 50 Years
The Canadian Jacques Maritain Association (CJMA) will meet for its 2023 spring conference at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, under the auspices of the Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Canadian Philosophical Association. The bilingual conference is scheduled for May 29-30, 2023. The deadline for abstract submissions is January 31, 2023.
The theme for this conference will be “Maritain Today – After 50 Years”. 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of Jacques Maritain’s death in 1973. To commemorate this event we wish to bring together scholars who will speak about Maritain’s enduring legacy for modern and postmodern culture and society and to expound on the many ways that his ideas can help us to address the important challenges of life in the 21st century.
To this end, we invite paper proposals in English or in French that deal with some aspect of Jacques Maritain’s writings in relation to current trends and developments in the world. Since Maritain wrote on many diverse subjects, from ethics and politics, to metaphysics and aesthetics, to logic and history, the scope of the conference is framed intentionally broadly.
Please send by e-mail a presentation abstract of no more than 500 words and any correspondence regarding the conference to:
Dr. Nikolaj Zunic
President, Canadian Jacques Maritain Association
Department of Philosophy, St. Jerome’s University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
The deadline for abstract submissions is January 31, 2023.
