Panel Topic: Dimensions of the Sacred: Contemporary Theory and Modern German Thought
October 4-7, 2007
San Diego, CA

Submission Deadline: February 12, 2007

Interest in the significance of religion and the sacred for contemporary theory has grown in recent years, and it shows no sign of abating soon. Commonly associated with such names as Derrida, Levinas, Agamben, Marion, and Badiou, and such fields of study as “political theology,” this line of inquiry asks us to consider the complex, often uneasy relationship that religious traditions have to the values, claims, and assumptions of secular thought. What can German Studies bring to the table at a moment when many thinkers are acknowledging the power and persistence of religion? This question can hardly be dismissed, particularly when one recalls the debt that contemporary theory owes to the modern German intellectual tradition. As the writings of Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Habermas show, German philosophy since Kant—broadly conceived to include literary criticism, political and legal theory, psychoanalysis, and religious studies—furnishes the most outstanding examples of this legacy. Addressing the way the present intellectual and theoretical environment dialogues with these diverse regions of modern German thought, this panel aims to show that German Studies has much to offer the theoretical debates of today. Potential contributors are invited to submit proposals of up to 250 words to Joshua Robert Gold at
