Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Islands, Islanders and Scripture Section encourages presenters to submit proposals for three sessions this year. The first, a combination of open call and invited papers, will address the themes of mobility and migration. A second, open session will address the impact of the environment on islands and island readings, with particular attention paid to the ecological health and future of islands and seas. Third, we are collaborating with Asian and Asian-American Hermeneutics, Bible and Cultural Studies and Contextual Biblical Interpretation on an open call for papers for a session on “Contextual Biblical Methodologies” (either methods shaped by a given context or theory-framed methods).
