2021 Call for Proposals

Inspired by 'Abdu’l-Bahá’s example of intellectual inquiry in service to the betterment of humanity, we encourage contributions that:

  • challenge “the stale assumptions and prejudices” of our age, while employing unifying methods and approaches;
  • explore the application of His writings to prevailing knowledge systems and discourses;
  • draw out the implications of His writings addressing the spiritual, material, and social prerequisites of the advancement of civilization.

We warmly encourage proposals from a wide range of disciplines and professions. We look forward to submissions that represent a diversity of voices and perspectives, of individual and collaborative efforts, and reflect the richness and creativity of the intellectual life of the community. Further details about the selection process can be found here.

The Association continues to explore new approaches to programming in order to create environments that are welcoming, accessible, build capacity for participation in prevalent discourses, and enable individuals and groups to advance in their respective areas of inquiry.
