EPS Far West Regional 2014 Call for Papers

Once again, we should have up to 6 EPS parallel sessions available to us at the ETS Far West Regional Conference, to be held at Pasadena Christian College, in Pasadena, CA, on Friday, April 11, 2014, from 1–8 pm.

I would like to encourage having a good range of faculty and student presentations.

  1. Paper proposals may be on any philosophical topic of interest to Christian philosophers, theologians, or biblical studies scholars. If you have a paper on a theme closely related to the ETS conference theme, that would be appreciated.
  2. Please submit a short abstract (no more than 200 words) of your paper to myself, scott.smith@biola.edu, BY JAN 31, 2014.
  3. Be sure your proposal is in a format compatible with Microsoft Word for Windows. Better still, just write it in the body of the e-mail.
  4. Sessions are limited to 40 minutes, so please plan on taking no longer than 25-30 minutes to read your paper (i.e., about 12-15 pages, double-spaced). We want to have time for questions and answers.

I will contact you later with information about the papers that are accepted, as well as schedule and registration info.

The ETS theme is: "The Trinity and the Bible: Evangelical Perspectives." Dr Fred Sanders of Biola University will be the ETS plenary speaker. There will be an optional banquet after the parallel sessions are over.

Note: If your proposal is accepted, you still will need to register for the conference through ETS. More info on that later.
