Gospel of Mark

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Gospel of Mark unit will hold one session for the 2013 International Meeting. This is an invited session on the topic “Communication, Pedagogy, and the Gospel of Mark." The aim of this session is to invite scholars from a range of perspectives to apply their approach specifically to the teaching of Mark. Key questions are: How do we evaluate traditional pedagogical models in light of recent approaches to the Gospel of Mark? What kind of educational and communicative practices should Markan studies develop in a pluralistic world? What differences, if any, do context (e.g., secular or confessional) and audience expectations make in our approach?
