Requirements for Participation

Pauline Epistles

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Pauline Epistles section aims to stimulate critical analysis of the letters of Paul by offering a platform for new research. The section maintains a historical orientation and typically focuses on situating the 7 or 8 undisputed Pauline letters in their immediate social, political, religious, and intellectual contexts. Though orientated towards Paul and the first-century, Pauline Epistles also supports research on the history of interpretation, including the adaptation and change of early Christian thought and practice in the pseudo-Paulines and important issues with 19th, 20th, and 21st century interpretation. The Pauline Epistles section welcomes papers on any topic that presents original and critical research in these areas. We will have one session with invited papers and three open sessions at the annual meeting in November 2014. Paper proposals for the open sessions will only be considered if they are submitted on the SBL website.
