LGBTI/Queer Hermeneutics

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The LGBTI/Queer Hermeneutics Section invites papers for sessions on the two following topics: The FIRST SESSION welcomes papers for a potentially co-sponsored session (with Religion and Sexuality, AAR) that engages the current and/or potential use of sacred texts (across traditions) in comprehensive sexuality education. The SECOND session is an open session, welcoming papers on any topics related to LGBTI/Queer biblical hermeneutics. We are also preparing two other sessions: The THIRD SESSION is an invited panel, exploring the intersections of womanist and LGBTI/Queer interpretations of the Bible in relation to the politics of respectability, co-sponsored with the Women in the Biblical World section. The FOURTH SESSION is an invited panel on trans biblical interpretation, co-sponsored with the Gender, Sexuality, and the Bible section.
