Political Biblical Criticism

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In 2014 the unit will launch two research projects. The first project, on Biblical Criticism in the Global South, seeks to examine the meaning and task of contemporary biblical criticism in the Global South. We will begin in Vienna with Africa and the Middle East in 2014, then proceed with Latin America and the Caribbean in 2014 (Buenos Aires) and with Asia and the Pacific in 2015 (Seoul). The second project, Constructing the Economics of Early Christianity, seeks to analyze the dynamics and mechanics, contexts and slants, behind the tradition of materialist approaches to early Christianity. The focus is not on economic studies of early Christianity, but on studies of such materialist studies of early Christianity. Presentations for both topics are welcome.
