3rd Global Conference: Forgiveness – Probing the Boundaries July 2010: Oxford, United Kingdom | cfp.english.upenn.edu.

This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference project seeks to investigate and explore the nature, significance, and practices of forgiveness. Asking for or granting forgiveness can often be a routine part of everyday life, but the nature of forgiveness as a personal, social and even international practice can be quite complex. It raises a wide variety of questions that touch on a vast array of academic disciplines. In cases of significant transgressions, social tensions, and even international conflicts the questions of what counts as forgiveness and how granting or withholding it can fundamentally change individual or international relationships becomes both more difficult and important to assess. This conference will look at the full range of this complexity. To encourage innovative trans-disciplinary dialogues, we warmly welcome papers from all disciplines, professions and vocations.
