Political Biblical Criticism


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2020 meeting, papers for an open session are invited that fit into the unit’s goal to pursue, on the one hand, the task of criticism, its vision and mission, in the contemporary world and, on the other hand, the development of a political approach, globalsystemic in orientation, to focus on major crises of the world—migration, inequality, climate—bringing together thereby, in interdisciplinary fashion, Biblical Studies and such other fields as Migration Studies, Economic Studies, and particular studies on the climate and natural environment. Other sessions are planned, on “Political Theology in the Hebrew Bible” as well as on “Biblical Discourse in Political Theology”, and also on "#MeToo and Jesus", in which invited scholars will present papers.
