Call For Papers: At the 2008 annual meeting, the Paul and Politics Group will hold one session with pre-invited panelists and one open session. The open session is jointly sponsored with the African-American Biblical Hermeneutics Section. For this session we invite papers that explore political implications in Pauline texts that relate in some way to African-American issues and concerns. When submitting a paper for this session, please submit your proposal to both program units. The Paul and Politics Program Unit includes in its scope four overlapping kinds of politics: "Paul and the politics of the churches," "Paul and the politics of Israel," "Paul and the politics of the Roman Empire" and "Paul and the "Paul and politics of Interpretation."
