Ideological Criticism


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Ideological Criticism issues an open call for two sessions. We welcome all papers concerned with ideological criticism as defined in the program unit description. This year we are especially but not exclusively interested in papers that explore the following two topics: (1) theory and history, and (2) interpretation and global capitalism. First, in response to our sense of a growing divide in biblical studies between theory and history, we encourage proposals for papers that offer theoretically reflective historical analyses. Second, and to continue ongoing conversations in our program unit about biblical interpretation in the context of global capitalism, we welcome proposals for papers that advance our understanding of political exegesis in the contemporary moment.
