Requirements for Participation

Political Biblical Criticism


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For 2019, the unit welcomes proposals in all dimensions of political criticism. Proposals may thus address this type of criticism as such: what is political criticism and what does it do? Proposals may also bring into critical dialogue the field of Biblical Studies with other fields of studies dealing with contemporary political problematics, whether national, regional, or global: for example, Global Studies, Migration and Refugee Studies, Economic Studies, Climate Studies. With the conference moving to Rome in 2019, papers which attempt to explore connections between ancient “politics” and modern politics in biblical interpretation, or such connections which biblical interpreters have been making, are particularly welcome.
