The Australasian Philosophy of Religion Association aims to encourage, publicise and circulate scholarly work within the field of philosophy of religion. It also hopes to foster greater ties between scholars working in the field by providing a forum for a constructive and critical analysis of religion.

The Association acknowledges the broadly analytical focus of the field of philosophy of religion. However, its scope is not limited to this tradition. The Association hopes to encourage alternative approaches and facilitate dialogue between philosophical traditions.

If you would like to present a paper, please submit a title, a short abstract (of up to 200 words), and a brief bio to Nick.Trakakis@arts.monash.edu.au. Proposals on any topic in the philosophy of religion and philosophical theology will be considered by the organising committee. A plenary session on “Perspectives on apostasy and other heresies in Islamic thought” may be included, and if you would like to contribute to this plenary session, please specify this with your submission.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: May 1, 2010.

Dr. Nick Trakakis,
on behalf of the APRA organising committee
