Coming up is the first Conference organized by Students and dedicated to the Students of the Roman Pontifical Universities.
The theme chosen was one of the most influential historical movements of the last century: the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s. With this movement, the codes of behavior that had governed sexuality and the traditional family were radically challenged and changed.
On this basis, “papers” are sought that examine the sources and subsequent influence of this important historical event from a philosophical, historical or theological perspective.
Dates: Deadline for abstracts (optional): March 15, 2023; Deadline for papers: May 5, 2023; Student Conference: Nov. 7, 2023.
NOTE: Students can still submit a paper, even if they have not submitted an abstract.
Audience: First- and second-cycle students enrolled in Roman Pontifical Universities, Universities, Faculties or Institutes.
Length: Papers must be between 4000 and 9000 words in length.
Selection Method: Papers will be selected by a scientific committee composed of faculty members of the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum.
Languages: Papers may be written in Italian, English and Spanish.
Prize: The papers will be published by the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum and the students whose papers were selected will briefly present their papers during the conference. The student will also win a prize of 150 euros or a scholarship to participate in a diploma and specialization course of their choice at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum.
