2014 ISRLC Conference

*Please forward all enquiries to marije.altorf@smuc.ac.uk 

Abstracts are now being sought for a panel on the practice of dialogue at the 2014 International 
Society for Religion, Literature and Culture Conference
 
Re-imagining human through the practice of dialogue
Panel-convenor: Marije Altorf
 
The notion of dialogue denotes a range of diverse practices. Dialogues have been proven to be the 
means of averting disaster between warring parties, but the promise of dialogue has also been an 
empty gesture. Dialogues were central to the teaching of the Academy and a variation of these has 
seen become again widely practiced in the 20th century. What is it to have a genuine dialogue? And 
what does practice presuppose or reveal about our humanity?
 
This panel proposes to consider the conference theme of re-imagining human through the practice 
of dialogue. It welcomes contributions that address the questions through their own practice of 
dialogue. 
 
Please send proposals of no more than 300 words to marije.altorf@smuc.ac.uk before 30 April, 2014.

For further information concerning this panel, please contact the panel convenor. For more 
information on the conference, consult the ISRL website: www.isrlc.org.
