Requirements for Participation

Gospel of Luke

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Gospel of Luke section will offer three sessions in 2020. First, we invite submissions for an open session covering any aspect of Luke’s distinctive narrative construction and its rhetorical, theological, and ethical emphases. Proposals for papers that employ new, marginalized, or multiperspectival approaches to Luke are especially welcome. The section will also host “Early Reception of Luke in Visual Art,” jointly sponsored with the Bible and Visual Arts section. This second session will include both invited papers and some selected through the call for papers. We therefore invite proposals exploring Lukan characters, scenes, or motifs in visual art, and "Wealth and Poverty in Luke-Acts, Revisited," jointly sponsored with the Economics in the Biblical World and Book of Acts sections. This third session will be made up of invited panelists and is not accepting additional paper proposals.
