Dear Prof.ssa Angela Ales Bello,
We hope that this issue of the IASPES Newsletter finds you experiencing a fruitful summer, one that includes participation in the forthcoming 5th Bi-Annual IASPES Conference in Cologne, Germany, 15-17 August. The Conference on Edith Stein’s Itinerary: Phenomenology, Christian Philosophy, and Carmelite Spirituality features over 60 presentations from scholars from many parts of the globe. The number and range of talks and the international character of the event is unprecedented in Stein studies. We are extremely grateful to Professor Dr. Theology and Philosophy, Harm Kleuting, the key organizer of the event, and for our IASPES President Professor Antonio Calcagno for their long hours of planning and thought in developing the conference program and handling the myriad arrangements involved.
This newsletter issue encompasses our Association’s development since late December 2018. Compared to the last issue circulated in mid-December, we have far fewer announcements. We look forward to a fuller newsletter with the next issue.
