And boy, are we planning a great blog conference!!! I don’t want to reveal too many details yet, but, here is what I can tell you:
- The conference theme is “Karl Barth in Conversation with…” where the blank is filled in with another notable theological or philosophical thinker.
- We already have papers lined up to put Barth in conversation with Bultmann, Torrance, Tanner, Jenson, Gadamer, Coakley, Bonhoeffer, Zizek, and Schleiermacher!
- The conference will be posted in the Fall of this year.
- There is now a Barth Blog Conference page on Facebook, so check it out. Updates will be posted there as well.
- Its not too late to get involved. If you want to propose a plenary post and put Barth in conversation with someone, or if you are interested in serving as a respondent (either to a particular plenary or just in general), don’t hesitate to e-mail: derevth at gmail dot com.
