Uniting Mind and Body: Cognition, Embodiment and Liturgy

2019 Central Regional Conference
September 12–14, 2019 
Hope College
Holland, Michigan

Conference Theme

The conference will explore:

  • The ways in which philosophy and liturgy relate to one another, both in regard to liturgy in general or particular aspects of liturgies.
  • The philosophy of mind, psychology, cognitive science or embodied cognition.
  • Historical or contemporary discussions of the relation of mind and body and related issues.
  • Issues concerning embodiment and ways in which we experience embodiment, including, but not limited to, race, gender, sexual identity, religious identity, religious experiences (positive and negative) and so on.
  • The relation of any of these topics to religion(s), the philosophy of religion or the Christian tradition.

We welcome the participation of both Christians and non-Christians as presenters, commentators and participants.
