Call for Papers

The International Association for Anselm Studies invites proposals for its upcoming conference, to be held in Boston College, July 27-30, 2015. 

The conference takes as its theme the wide variety of responses to Anselm's life, and work, across many different periods, and in many different fields. At the same time it will ground the reception of Anselm with consideration of the context in which he lived, wrote and acted. Moving between his life and his reception, will allow fresh insight into the mechanisms and measures of his celebrity and influence. 

The Association invites submissions in areas including but not limited to literature, history, art history, philosophy, and theology. It would especially welcome papers on Anselm's sources; Anselm's pupils; Anselm and church reform; the wider world of religious politics in the 11th and 12th centuries; Anselm in the vernacular; Reformation and Counter-Reformation views on Anselm; and Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox discussions. 

The conference will receive an update on the new edition of Anselm's letter collection under preparation by Dr Samu Niskanen. Papers connected to the letter collections, the Memorials of St. Anselm and historiographical readings of Anselm also are encouraged.


Please send proposed titles, with an abstract of 300 words for a twenty-minute paper together with your contact details (with academic affiliation, address and e-mail) by e-mail attachment to .

The deadline for abstracts has been extended to March 31, 2015.
