Call For Papers

International Conference, Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Organized by The Franciscan Study Center and The Thomas Institute at Tilburg University
Date: 29th June 2022 - 1 July 2022

Theme

This conference aims to chart the multiform phenomenon of moral conversion in Western society by
* analyzing building blocks, sequences, and variations in ethical instances of profound change of self and identity;
* tracing experiences and events of ethical transformation in various testimonies and fields of human existence; and
* turning the phenomenon of moral conversion into a lens through which to view the dynamics of existential and ethical belief systems.

The conference aims to renew the understanding of the phenomenon by
* studying its impact in the history of Western society; and
* relating it to present discussions on ethical behavior and concern for the common good.

Themes to be addressed may include, but are not limited to:

1. Moral conversion as an ethical / spiritual / psychological / social phenomenon
2. Mendicant conversion: preaching and moral transformation (Francis, Dominic, Bonaventure, Thomas...)
3. Moral conversion: testimonies and theories
4. Modern-day (wicked) problems and moral conversion: leadership, care, sustainability, happiness
