Refo500 Meeting

The Eighth Annual RefoRC Conference is hosted by the University of Warsaw and will take place May 24-26, 2018.
Theme of Plenary Lectures: Reformation and Education

The Reformation was closely tied to the renovation of educational models from its very beginning. By questioning the model of the medieval university and establishing new pedagogical solutions, early modern scholars and teachers shaped subsequent generations of clergy and laity, enabling them to work for their local communities and engage in the public sphere. Often these educational agendas went well beyond changes in curricula and were oriented towards much deeper goals, such as the shaping of confessional identity or the achieving of universal religious peace through the advancement of learning. As one of the leading research and educational institutions in Poland and East-Central Europe, the University of Warsaw is the perfect venue to ask further questions about the complex relations between early modern religious and pedagogical reforms. The plenary papers will offer a multi-faceted approach to this topic and will be accompanied by a series of short papers discussing all kinds of subjects related to the history of the Reformation. The aim of the conference is thus to broaden and contextualize the intersections between religious and educational reform.

Call for Papers: From Reformation to Reformations

Amsterdam, 20 September 2017, conference From Reformation to Reformations: On Analogies, Ideals and Ideas. This conference will seek to contribute to the developing field of cross-cultural religious and cultural studies by analyzing the cultural, political and linguistic uses of the “Reformation” in the modern era, from circa 1800 until the present day.

It will investigate how and why modern movements, intellectuals and politicians referred to the “Reformation” as historical event, process, or principle. It will highlight how in modernity, ‘Reformation’ oscillated between a static, historic definition on the one hand, and a dynamic and subjective interpretation on the other. The focus of this conference will be primarily on (post-)modern uses of the term ‘Reformation’ outside the strict context of Protestant theology, but in various other religious traditions and societies.

Go for more information to the website or the pdf.

Via.
