Call For Papers: The Asian and Asian American Hermeneutics group invites all papers relating to reading the Bible and other sacred texts in, from, as well as to Asian and Asian American contexts and communities. We welcome papers that examine methodological issues involved in interpretation and hermeneutics, as well as papers that offer readings of specific texts and passages. Both veteran and first-time presenters are encouraged to submit proposals. While our open session(s) may deal with a variety of topics, we especially welcome papers that explore the theme of the Bible and Empire from Asian and/or Asian American perspectives.
