Call for Papers Third RefoRC Conference 2013 Berlin


Berlin is home of the Third RefoRC Conference 2013, to be held May 16–18, 2013 and hosted by the Interdisciplinary Centre ‘Middle Ages – Renaissance – Early Modern Period’.


The conference is open to individual short paper presentations (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes discussion) and to thematic sessions of two or three short papers. It is also possible to attend the conference without presenting a paper.

Short Paper Proposals

While papers on the conference theme are encouraged, papers may also focus on all disciplines related to the 16th century reformations, such as arts, philosophy, law, history, theology etc., independent of the theme of the plenary papers. Short paper proposals should be sent via the registration form before February 15, 2013.

Theme of Plenary Papers

The topic for plenary papers of the Third RefoRC Conference will be “Anthropological Reformations – Anthropology in the Era of Reformation”. Our aim is to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion about the establishment and debates on anthropological concepts and their changes in the age of the Reformation. Plenary speakers include Klaus Bergdolt (Cologne), Jutta Eming (Berlin), Wolfgang Fuhrmann (Vienna), Ronnie Po-chia Hsia (Penn State), Andrew James Johnston (Berlin), Risto Saarinen (Helsinki), Notger Slenczka (Berlin), Johan Verberckmoes (Louvain), Anna Vind (Copenhagen) and Elke Anna Werner (Berlin).


Registration is now open through our website, where all additional information can be found.
