The next Annual Colloquy of the American Weil Society will be held at Boston College (USA) on April 23-25, 2020. The theme ‘Spirituality, beauty and justice’ is deliberately broad, so that any aspect of Weil’s political, religious and/or ethical philosophy may be addressed under the heading. Your proposals (300 words maximum) should be prepared for anonymous review and emailed to Prof. Tomeu Estelrich before January 8th 2020 at the following address: estelric@bc.edu.

The proposals will be reviewed by a committee, consisting of the host (Prof. Estelrich), the President of the AWS (Prof. Sophie Bourgault), and the Vice President of the AWS (Prof. Scott Ritner). We remind you that in order to present a paper, you must be an up-to-date member of the AWS.
