Call for Papers: Economics and Human Flourishing

The Economic Humanist Group together with the Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics (ISLE) invites submissions of abstracts and papers for consideration for inclusion in their jointly hosted conference on the topic of:

Economics and Human Flourishing: (What) Can Economists Learn from Theology?

Conference to be held at the Leuven Center of Christian Studies in Leuven Belgium on June 30 and July 1st, 2023.

Call for papers Deadline: January 31, 2023

Details about submission requirements can be found here.

Two parallel workshop tracks

Track A: To explore the potential shared anthropological ground between economics and theology, inviting contributions from disciplines including theology, anthropology, philosophy (e.g. personalism), and history of ideas.

Track B: Specifically designed for scholars trained in the (formal) language of economic models. Asking how insights from other disciplines with a richer understanding of anthropology can feed in ideas to economists, whilst allowing them to treat those insights within the ‘epistemic culture’ of economics, based to a considerable degree on mathematical modeling.

Call for Abstracts

Economics for the Common Good: The Work of Christian Economists

A conference sponsored by:

The Association of Christian Economists
&
The Department of Economics and Business at Hope College

Conference Dates: July 20th to 22nd 2023
Submissions Due: January 15th 2023

The economics discipline is at the center of some of the biggest questions that humans face, including those about poverty, wealth, the role of the state, inequality, growth, the cost of living, migration, education, and family. Christian thinking has often motivated scholars to delve deeply into these important questions, sometimes offering a distinct way of approaching our pursuit of the common good. In order to explore Christian’s work in the discipline of economics, and to spur Christian thinking about economic topics, the Association of Christian Economists invites all interested scholars to join us for an academic conference at Hope College in Holland, MI, in July of 2022.

The conference will feature three plenary lectures by Paul Oslington (Alphacrucis University College), Sarah Hamersma (Syracuse University), and Daniel Hungerman (University of Notre Dame), as well as concurrent sessions featuring presentations by economists from a variety of Christian theological and economic traditions. We welcome papers that are theoretical, empirical, historical, or philosophical in nature, as well as proposals for panel sessions around a theme of general interest. We welcome papers that specifically address the relationship between faith and economic reasoning as well as those that use conventional economic analysis to investigate questions of interest. Selected papers from the conference will appear in Faith & Economics, the journal of the Association of Christian Economists.

Instructions

Individual paper submissions should include a title, author, and abstract. Full paper drafts are welcome. Complete session proposals are encouraged and should include title/author/abstract for 3 to 4 speakers. Panel sessions that do not include research presentations should include a title, a detailed description of the topic to be discussed, and the proposed participants. All questions and submissions should be emailed to [email protected]. First priority will be given to submissions received before January 15th, 2023. 

Submissions from graduate students are encouraged. Students can attend at a discounted rate, and there is a limited pool of travel support available for students whose papers are accepted. Please indicate your desire to apply for this support in an email to [email protected].

Location

Hope College’s campus, green and full of bursting flower beds in July, abuts Holland’s attractive downtown with its many shops, restaurants, and brew pubs. The beautiful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan are close by. We anticipate a convivial time of scholarly discussion, fellowship, and conversation over the course of the meetings.
