This should prove to be excellent. AJTP is a top journal in the field of philosophy of religion, philosophical theology, and philosophical naturalism. The journal is linked with IARPT, the Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought, or link HERE. The journal and institute, while grounded in the American philosophical tradition, does present Continental figures, usually in the process tradition, e.g. Deleuze, Schelling, Meillassoux, Hegel."The Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought is pleased to announce that William Connolly will be the speaker for the 2015 American Journal of Theology & Philosophy Lecture (Nov 22 at the American Academy of Religion meeting in Atlanta -- more details soon).Connolly is the Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and the author of many celebrated works of political theory, including The Terms of Political Discourse (1974), Capitalism and Christianity, American Style (2008), and The Fragility of Things: Self-Organizing Processes, Neoliberal Fantasies, and Democratic Activism (2013)."
As an aside, I've published several articles in AJTP (one on Deleuze, creativity, and naturalism) as well as several book reviews on Hartshorne, Whitehead, and Corrington. I am glad Connolly is doing the lecture - he is a major figure in process and is also adored (along with Jane Bennett) by the process philosophers in the speculative realism crowd. This lecture is going to bring closer together in their similar perspectives process philosophy and speculative realism, I am sure.
