Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Feminist Interpretations unit will organize the following sessions. 1) Methodological and hermeneutical issues specifically relating to exegesis in feminist and gender studies. In this session papers should focus on different methodologies (e.g., historical critical, narratology, intertextuality, decoloniality, interreligious, Intersectional and transnational studies ...) and their relevance for gender studies. 2) Feminist exegesis and cultural studies, specifically on the reception history of gender relevant themes and texts of the Bible. 3) Junior section of gender relevant exegesis of biblical texts. In this section we expect papers of young researchers presenting their research projects. We welcome papers that examine biblical texts from a gender perspective, firmly anchored in clear methodology. 4) In this session we are particularly interested in papers discussing current biblical feminist theory and practice in Finland and other Nordic countries and the issues faced by women scholars in these contexts.
