Announcing the 2013 Karl Barth Conference
Our friends over at the Center for Barth Studies have officially announced the details for this year’s Karl Barth Conference, to take place June 16-19, 2013, on the campus of Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey.
This year’s theme is “Karl Barth in Dialogue: Encounters with Major Figures.” The conference papers will put Barth into conversation with various major thinkers including Paul Tillich, Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI), Thomas Aquinas, T.F. Torrance, Elisabeth Johnson, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Georges Florovsky, Sergei Bulgakov, Jon Sobrino, James Cone, and Friedrich Schleiermacher.
Speakers include John Drury, Peter Casarella, Nick Healy, Paul Molnar, Cherith Fee Nordling, D. Stephen Long, Matthew Baker, Brandon Gallaher, Nathan Hieb, Raymond Carr, and George Hunsinger.
Be sure to visit the conference site for more details, including registration and the conference schedule. These are always interesting events (regretfully, my last Barth conference was in 2009), intimate in scale but drawing on some of the very best Barth scholarship in the English-speaking world.
