Requirements for Participation

Synoptic Gospels

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Synoptic Gospels section invites proposals for papers for its open sessions on the content or formation of any of the Synoptic Gospels. We especially are interested in papers that address the relationship between two or more of the Gospels or deal with themes that touch on multiple Gospels. The Synoptic Gospels section also invites proposals for an open session for papers that deal with readings of the Synoptic Gospels that interact with contemporary politics, both in North America and beyond. In addition, there will be one invited, co-sponsored session examining the new edition of Richard Burridge’s seminal book What are the Gospels (Baylor, 2018).
