Feminist Hermeneutics of the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Complexities of methodologies and interplays of social locations have shaped the discourses of counter-traditional biblical interpretation during the past decade, foregrounding categories such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexual identity, etc. To foster theoretical exploration across differences, grounded in particularities, the Feminist Biblical Hermeneutics of the Bible Section is proposing a re-examination of “The Parameters of Feminist Biblical Interpretation” for the next couple of years. The sessions planned for 2008 are calling for papers on: 1) What makes a Feminist Reader? 2) What makes a method of interpretation feminist? 3) Open session on any relevant issues. To look ahead, For 2009, we are planning to address the issue of Feminist Biblical Commentaries in terms of genre, function, and impact.
