Call for Papers

Heresy, Blasphemy, and Freedom of Expression

 The University of Central Florida Department of Philosophy, the Ethics Center Initiative, the Humanities Center Initiative, the UCF Program for Information Fluency, Florida Philosophical Review: The Journal of the Florida Philosophical Association, and the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities announce a call for papers for a conference on "Heresy, Blasphemy, and Freedom of Expression" to be held at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida on January 18-20, 2007.

 This 3-day conference is intended to share information, ideas, and arguments on issues related to freedom of expression and discussion, freedom of the press, information and misinformation, and the acquisition, evaluation, use and dissemination of information. We seek papers and panel presentation proposals on the general theme of the conference as well as those relevant to the recent events and discussions surrounding the publication of "blasphemous" cartoon depictions of the prophet Muhammad. Our invitation for papers and panel discussion proposals on topics related to the theme of the conference is inter- and multi-disciplinary, including issues in art, the news media, teaching, government, academic integrity, censorship, moral responsibility, and other related concepts or topics that speak to moral, social, historical, political, aesthetic, religious, theological, scientific and other issues in the free flow of information; personal, social, institutional, and governmental responsibility concerning freedom, dissemination, and acquisition of information; and problems, theories, principles, and concepts involved in the acquisition, use, abuse, assessment, and dissemination of information in ethical, social, political, religious, personal, and professional contexts. Selected papers and proceedings of the conference may be published in a special edition of Florida Philosophical Review.

 Papers should be prepared for 30-40 minute presentation time. Proposals for round-table or panel discussions should be prepared for 50 minute presentation time. Submit an abstract of your paper of no more than 500 words, prepared for anonymous review. Round-table or panel discussion proposals must include the title of the discussion/presentation, participant names and areas of expertise, and a brief statement of the significance and goals of discussion of the topic. Abstracts of papers and round-table or panel discussion proposals must be received by October 15, 2006. Notifications will be finalized by December 10.

 The conference is open to participation and presentation of all academic levels (faculty, administrators, graduate and undergraduate students).

You may send your abstract or proposal by e-mail to:
