Call For Papers: 2018: Bible, Ecology, and Other Disciplines When we started in 2016, the articulation of the major trends on the development of hermeneutical approaches and methodologies has been the focus of the preliminary workshop on ecological hermeneutics. On the first year of the research unit in 2017, we focused on critical and peripheral theological readings of the biblical texts and on critical voices on environmental issues deriving either from non-European contexts or from other areas of environmental ethics in order to enrich the discussion with their voices. In 2018, the research unit determines possible ways of a fruitful encounter between eco-theology and sciences in dialogue with the biblical text. For the 2018 EABS and ISBL joint meeting, there will be sessions with invited speakers and open call for papers. For the open session(s), we welcome papers that clearly highlight how the biblical ecological hermeneutics can have an inter-, intra-, multi, cross-, and/or trans-disciplinary dialogue with other disciplines in addressing various ecological issues.
