Call For Papers: KBC’s 2020 Symposium is on: “Intersectionality” – the subject matter of 2019 SBL President Gale Yee’s presidential address. Intersectionality, coined by Kimberle Crenshaw (1989, 2020) and illuminated by Patricia Hill Collins (2019) has become a seminal and inclusive framework for new insights in biblical-historical-theological hermeneutics. In Boston 2020, we intersect SBL, AAR, and ASA on “intersectionality” with: presentations by Gale Yee, Episcopal Divinity School (SBL President, 2019 – first woman of color), “kyriarchy’s author” Elizabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Harvard (first woman SBL president) and the author of intersectionality Patricia Hill Collins, University of Maryland (Former President of ASA). Although we are not accepting papers for this session, we are accepting paper proposals for possible publication. Should your abstract be selected, further information will be sent. We encourage proposals on intersectionality with your area of specialization in one of the following areas: Intersectionality and the Bible; Intersectionality and History; or Intersectionality and Theology/Culture.
