CFP: EPS Far West 2018

Call for Papers from R. Scott Smith, EPS Secretary-Treasurer:

The far west regional meeting of the Evangelical Philosophical Society will take place Friday, April 13, 2018, at Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, AZ, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the far west region of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Call for Papers

The EPS is expecting papers for up to 6 parallel sessions. I would like to encourage having a good range of faculty and student presentations.

  1. Paper proposals may be on any philosophical topic of interest to Christian philosophers, theologians, or biblical studies scholars. If you have a paper on a theme closely related to the ETS conference theme [see note below], that would be appreciated.
  2. Please submit a short abstract (no more than 200 words) of your paper to myself,, BY FEB 15, 2018. Please just write it in the body of an e-mail message.
  3. Sessions are limited to 40 minutes, so please plan on taking up to 25 minutes to read your paper (i.e., about 12.5 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt). We want to have time for questions and answers.

I will contact you later with information about the papers that are accepted, as well as schedule, registration, and optional banquet info (which is a good time to mingle and build relationships).

You also may know of students who should be encouraged to submit a proposal – if so, please do that. All presenters will need to be(come) members of EPS.

NOTE: The ETS theme is Christology, and the plenary will be a discussion of how Christology is the intersection of all disciplines, by Dr. Stephen Wellum. Any paper on the theme of Christology that is presented can also (if the author chooses) be considered for publication in JBTS, which is a journal for which Dr. Daniel Diffey, the ETS regional VP & host, serves as general editor. (You can see the journal online at, and it is printed by Wipf & Stock.)
