Call for Workshop Proposals
In addition to plenary sessions, keynote papers, and visits to local sites, the ICCJ also puts a great emphasis on the interactive workshops that occur during its annual conferences.
The ICCJ invites proposals for workshops touching on the topics of and issues related to the annual conference theme (see here). Additionally, proposals for workshops on the current state of Jewish-Christian, and Jewish-Christian-Muslim, dialogue on the international or local scenes are also invited.
- the workshop title and an abstract of no more than 300 words,
- the name(s) of the workshop presenter(s) + short biographical blurb(s), and
- a description of the methodology and pedagogical format of the workshop of no more than 100 words
are due by February 29, 2024 and are to be sent to the ICCJ headquarters (events(at)iccj.org). Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by March 22, 2024.
Guidelines for preparing workshop proposals:
- Workshops are expected to be interactive, involving the participants as much as possible. They are not meant to be lectures or academic papers delivered to passive audiences. They can be panel presentations, in which case having Jews and Christians (and Muslims) as discussants is preferred.
- Workshops will be mostly in English, a few will be in German.
- Workshop presenters are expected to respect the given time frame (90 minutes).
- If relevant and/or possible, workshop presenters are encouraged to provide handouts to participants.
- All workshop presenters are expected to cover their travel and housing and to pay conference registration fee. In special circumstances, the conference fee can be reduced or waived; please contact the ICCJ headquarters. Thank you for your understanding.
There is a limited number of workshop slots available. The conference program committee will select from the proposals it receives on the basis of their relevance to the conference theme and/or the significance of the topics proposed.
