News has come through of an important looking conference in Melbourne later this month.
The Institute for Religion and Critical Enquiry (Australian Catholic University) and Catholic Theological College (University of Divinity) present a 2 day colloquium titled Contemporary Questions in Philosophical and Theological Hermeneutics on 19 & 20 June in Melbourne.
Though originally restricted to interpreting legal and biblical texts, hermeneutics now makes a distinctive contribution across the full extent of both philosophy and theology. This colloquium opens up a wide range of questions in which hermeneutics is engaged, drawing together important scholars from France and across Australia.
The colloquium will feature leading international academics Professor Claude Romano (University of Paris-Sorbonne & ACU), Professor Jean-Luc Marion (University of Chicago Divinity School and Immortel, Academie Francaise) and Professor Kevin Hart (University of Virginia and ACU) as well as renowned local philosophers and theologians.
Lunch will be provided to participants on the Friday.
