New Prize Competition: Diversifying Analytic Theology (Deadline Approaching)

Thanks to funding from the American Philosophical Association’s Diversity and Inclusiveness Fund, the editors of the Journal of Analytic Theology are pleased to announce a prize competition for the best paper in analytic theology of an underrepresented religious or theological tradition.

With “underrepresented” we mean a paper outside of traditional forms of orthodox Christianity. In particular, we are looking for papers drawing on traditions including, but not limited to the following: Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, Hinduism, (neo)Paganism.

Every eligible submission will be considered for the prize of USD 500, and for inclusion in a special issue of the Journal of Analytic Theology. The special issue will contain the winning essay, as well as other essays that have received a positive evaluation. A board of experts with a broad range of specialisms in various theological traditions will evaluate the entries.

To compete for this prize competition, please send your paper to with the subject line “Diversity APA prize competition” by October 1st, 2019. By submitting your paper, you agree that:

  1. Your paper will be considered for a special issue on underrepresented theological traditions; and
  2. Your paper has not been published before and is not under consideration elsewhere for the duration of the assessment period of this prize competition.

Papers submitted after October 1st, 2019 will not be considered for the prize or special issue (but can still be considered for other issues of the Journal of Analytic Theology under the normal refereeing channels).
