A perennial subject in many disciplines, the relationship between religion and ethics is now often at the center of local, national and international events and crises. Conference planners will consider papers and presentations on any relevant topic. Some possible issues include: What are the limits of tolerance? Are there ways for opposing fundamentalisms to positively engage each other? What is the role of religion in thinking through the ethics of life and death in a secular society? Is there such a thing as a just war? What potential is there for a deeper conversation between Islamic and non-Islamic cultures? Is there enough common ground between religions to create a global ethic? Also papers applying ethical principles of a particular faith tradition are encouraged.
