Feminist Hermeneutics of the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers:

In 2010, the Feminist Hermeneutics of the Bible Section will explore diverse trajectories within feminist interpretations of the Bible. There will be two open sessions to which presenters are encouraged to submit papers.

One session will be an open call. Presenters are encouraged to submit proposals in the general area of feminist hermeneutics of the Bible.

The second open session will focus on postcolonial feminist perspectives and interpretations of the Bible. The subject matter of this second session honors Kwok Pui-lan, who becomes president of AAR in 2011. Presenters’ submissions need not directly engage Kwok’s writings, but should demonstrate or engage postcolonial feminist interpretation.

The section’s programs will also have two invited panels. One will be sponsored by multiple program units and will engage the legacy of feminist biblical interpretation. A second invited panel will explore the topic of masculinities within the Bible and biblical world from a feminist perspective.
