The Trials of Desire: Conversations in Honor of Denys Turner
If I might, I would like to interrupt these proceedings to bring you a special bulletin that may be of interest to dotCommonweal readers. In two weeks, a friend and I will be hosting a gathering of Professor Denys Turner‘s friends, students, and colleagues to mark his retirement from full-time teaching at Yale. Denys’ book, Julian of Norwich, Theologian, was recently reviewed (subscribers) in these pages. The event will run from March 22-24 at St. Thomas More Chapel and Center at Yale, and it will include three public lectures from Cyril O’Regan, David Burrell, and Terry Eagleton on each evening of the conference. There will also be twelve other paper sessions as well as an opening reception, a closing dinner, and various other opportunities for toasting and general merriment. You can find a full list of speakers and events on the conference website. If you register by March 15, you will be able to reserve meals, and March 21 is the deadline to receive the papers, which will be pre-circulated so that we can make the most of our time together. Thank you for your attention. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
