Transverberations: Iberian Mysticism in a Global Context is a two-day conference to be held over the 5th and 6th of February 2015 in the SALC Graduate School, University of Manchester. The event aims to explore the cultural, political, and theological impact of Spanish mysticism on global cultures from its nascence into the present day. Taking place in the aftermath of the 500th anniversary of Teresa of Avila’s birth, the conference will offer an opportunity to reflect on the events and achievements of the centenary year and identify new paths and approaches for researchers working in this field. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the sublime, commemoration and memorials, the relation between mysticism and gender, sexuality, violence, power and empowerment, the transnational, representations of the ineffable, Teresian legacy and mysticism in the contemporary world.
We invite proposals for 20-minute papers in English. Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words and a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 14th, 2015.
