Call for Papers
This “Call for Papers” is an invitation to submit any material regarding the design of Catholic church design that you would like to present or see addressed in this symposium. Academic papers on a range of topics are warmly invited, as are presentations of built work or theoretical design. Please keep in mind two guidelines: 1) the symposium takes as its starting point that we should build in a organic extension and transformation of the tradition of Catholic church architecture and Catholic ideas; 2) the symposium is about the design of Catholic churches, such that submitted papers and presentations should always bear directly upon the challenges of designing and building great Catholic church architecture today.
All submissions will be reviewed by a review committee of The Partnership for Catholic Sacred Architecture. Selected submissions will be edited into a post-program published work. Selected authors of submissions will be invited to serve in a special role in the symposium, possibly delivering their presentations, acting as members of panel discussions, or in some other fashion playing a special role in the proceedings.
Submission of synopsis
Please submit CV, writing sample and synopsis of paper or presentation as it relates to one of the symposium topics (found on the Program page) no later than 5:00 PM EST, March 26th, 2010.
Selection based on synopsis, and Notification
Once reviewed, notification of accepted papers will be made by 5:00 PM EST, April 9th, 2010.
Presenters selected to serve in a special role in the symposium will be invited to do so via e-mail. To be considered for this, they must be available for the dates of the symposium.
Submission of final paper or presentation
Once notified, accepted papers and presentations must be completed and submitted in their final form no later than 5:00 PM EST, April 23th, 2010.
Submit electronic files of documents to the email@example.com e-mail address. If files are too large and your e-mail is rejected by the e-mail system, please use the same e-mail address to contact us so that other arrangements can be made. Please allow time for delivery of disks of other media before the deadline if such delivery is required due to file size. However, where possible, compact file formats are preferred.
