Feminist Hermeneutics of the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Feminist Hermeneutics of the Bible Section will offer three sessions at the 2013 Annual Meeting. One will be an open session for which paper proposals on any topic within the section’s scope of concern are welcome. A second will be a session on the theme “Feminist Hermeneutics, Economics and Biblical Interpretation.” Proposals for papers related to this theme are most welcome, especially papers addressing topics of contemporary relevance such as poverty, economic inequality, survival strategies for difficult economic times, and the like. A third session will feature an invited panel offering “Feminist Reviews of A New New Testament: A 21st Century Bible with Traditional and Newly Discovered Texts, Hal Taussig, editor.” The section will also co-sponsor a joint session with the Disputed Paulines Section on the theme, “Contemporary Feminist Readings of the Disputed Pauline Letters.” Especially welcome will be papers connecting feminist readings to the perspectives of post-colonial interpretation, readings from minoritized communities, and other contemporary approaches to the text.
