Academic Roger Bacon Conference

The Franciscan Institute at Saint Bonaventure University requests proposals (200-250 words) for scholarly papers and complete panels (3 to 4 papers) for the conference (July 21-24, 2022) dedicated to Roger Bacon’s Moralis Philosophia. This gathering will celebrate the new English translation of this critical text by two eminent scholars of the Doctor Mirabilis, Jeremiah Hackett, and Thomas S. Maloney. Proposals should explore themes in the Moralis Philosophia in the context of Bacon’s writings, medieval culture, and the potential implications for contemporary studies in the humanities and sciences. Ten bursaries covering registration and room/board costs are available to those presenting papers for the conference with the intent of editing their papers for publication in collaboration with the Franciscan Institute.

Panel and paper proposals will be accepted no later than October 4, 2021. Notice regarding the acceptance of papers and panels will be communicated to interested individuals no later than December 13, 2021.
