Open Theology (Call for Papers) – Cultural Trauma and the Hebrew Bible.

Open Theology (https://www.degruyter.com/OPTH) invites submissions for the topical issue “Cultural Trauma and the Hebrew Bible,” edited by Danilo Verde (KU Leuven) and Dominik Markl (Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome).

Deadline – March 31, 2022


In his work titled Trauma: A Social Theory, American sociologist Jeffrey C. Alexander argues: “Cultural trauma occurs when members of a collectivity feel they have been subjected to a horrendous event that leaves indelible marks upon their group consciousness, marking their memories forever and changing their future identity in fundamental and irrevocable ways” (p. 19). From this perspective, the mere occurrence of historical catastrophes or collective traumas does not necessarily result in cultural trauma, since cultural trauma only emerges when a collective catastrophe indelibly shapes a group’s collective memory and produces a profound revision of that group’s collective identity. Cultural trauma studies by no means constitute a single, monolithic research paradigm; yet, scholars in this field largely agree that cultural traumas “are for the most part historically made, not born” (Neil J. Smelser, Psychological Trauma and Cultural Trauma, 37), in the sense that they are the result of complex social processes.


Assuming the perspective of cultural trauma studies in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament scholarship involves understanding how texts and traditions that eventually formed the HB/OT both represented and shaped ancient Israel’s collective identity as profoundly disrupted and in need of recreation. The HB/OT frequently refers to collective experiences of disasters and crises. We accept papers that investigate the interrelationship between biblical representations of collective suffering and the creation of collective identity in ancient Israel and early Judaism in light of cultural trauma theory. Authors will explore biblical texts such as collective laments, curses, narratives, etc. not only as texts representing and voicing the community’s experience of catastrophic events, but also as tools to shape cultural trauma in ancient Israel and early Judaism. Authors are also encouraged to explore relevant texts as “equipment for living” (see  Kenneth Burke, Literature as Equipment for Living, 593-598) for the addressed community, namely as the literary and religious heritage through which the carrier groups of biblical texts attempted to build social resilience by coping with and giving meaning to collective suffering. Among others, topics or areas of focus might include:

  • Representations of collective trauma in the HB/OT: Narrative texts
  • Representations of collective trauma in the HB/OT: Poetic texts
  • Biblical strategies for the shaping of cultural traumas
  • Biblical strategies for the shaping of social resilience
  • Cultural trauma in the HB/OT and in ancient near Eastern literature: Patterns and motifs
  • Carrier groups of cultural traumas and their agendas in ancient Israel and early Judaism
  • Cultural trauma hermeneutics and historical critical approaches
  • The use of the Bible in shaping cultural trauma in the history of Judaism and Christianity

Open Theology (Call for Papers) – After the Theological Turn: Essays in (New) Continental Philosophical Theology

(This announcement is a second call)

“Open Theology” (https://www.degruyter.com/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue “After the Theological Turn: Essays in (New) Continental Philosophical Theology”, edited by Martin Koci (University of Vienna).

DESCRIPTION

This topical issue aims to explore, interrogate and reflect on the ways in which contemporary continental philosophy, and phenomenology in particular, unfolds and advances the development of philosophical theology. What does it mean to practice theology after the philosophical return to religion? During the last few decades, the renewal of theology has been much discussed in light of philosophical lectures that have revisited fundamental Christian concepts. However, the debate seems to be stuck on rather formal questions about whether the theological turn happened or not, whether it has been a legitimate or illegitimate development, and whether theology and philosophy can benefit at all from reconsidering their disciplinary borders. Moreover, from the theological perspective, crucial issues continue to be unresolved: What should the proper propaedeutic framework for theological work be in a secular context? How to formulate theologically valid as well as contextually plausible truth-claims? What kind of grammar should be employed in theology to create not only rational but also credible discourse? The working hypothesis behind this thematic issue is that philosophical—in particular phenomenological—engagement with theological concepts transforms the fundamental theological practice, revisits its rigor, and provides the possibility of developing an intelligible grammar for articulating normative theological claims. 

     We invite scholars in theology and continental philosophy of religion to address the following questions: Is phenomenology a suitable ancilla theologiae to provide theologians with sufficient philosophical grammar? Is it possible to develop, after the demise of metaphysics, a phenomenological theology? How does theology look after Marion, Henry, Chrétien, Lacoste, Falque et al.? Does theology benefit from philosophical reconsiderations of fundamental Christian concepts such as Revelation, the Incarnation, the Resurrection, etc.? The nerve and, at the same time, novelty of raising the question about after the theological turn is a critical application of explicit theological perspectives to thus test both the potential of and limits to philosophical reconsiderations of the theological for formulating plausible as well as credible theology.

Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

– transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,

– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions.

Because “Open Theology” is published under an Open Access model, as a rule, publication costs should be covered by Article Publishing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors.

Authors without access to publishing funds are encouraged to discuss potential discounts or waivers with Managing Editor of the journal Katarzyna Tempczyk (katarzyna.tempczyk@degruyter.com) before submitting their manuscripts. 

HOW TO SUBMIT

Submissions will be collected until April 15, 2022, via the on-line submission system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/openth/.

“Death & Religion” CFP by Open Theology (second call)

 A call for papers has been issued by Open Theology for a topical issue on “Death and Religion”

This is a (second call). Submissions will be collected until April 30, 2022


    “Open Theology” (https://www.degruyter.com/journal/key/OPTH/html) invites submissions for the topical issue “Death and Religion”, edited by Khyati Tripathi, Jennifer Moran Stritch and Peter G.A.Versteeg.

    Death and religion share an interdependent relation. Where death is an event or state that threatens to disintegrate worlds and meaning, religion can be seen as a practice that categorizes, consoles and makes sense of this kind of disintegration. According to Oxford dictionary, death is defined as “end of life”, but behind this simple definition, there is a web of complex ideas that could be understood from not just biological but also religious or cultural perspectives. Death has been conceptualized differently in different religious traditions as their texts and practices demonstrate. According to Lifton, religion is ‘life power’ and dominates death. Similarly, Davies put forth rituals as culture’s ‘words against death’.

     The relationship between death and religion should be seen as a broad scholarly query, which includes philosophical and theological questions, as well as more applied perspectives such as social work. Although death is a clinical process of organs that cease to function, dying and death are events that are surrounded by various sense-making practices, ranging from intricate traditional ceremonies as part of established religious repertoires, to more personal, individualized rituals. Social-cultural context, therefore, is of utmost importance to understand how we interact with dying persons and dead bodies, and why we do it in that particular way.

    In theology we see how faith traditions historically account for the reality of death, reflecting upon its existential meaning and thus trying to understand how to deal with the event of death. As such, a theology of death raises both practical (e.g. in spiritual care) and systematical (e.g. in ethics) questions regarding death and dying.

     In psychology death anxiety or fear of death invited a great deal of interest starting in the late 1950s with Fiefel’s work on death anxiety and religion. Different studies pointed at different relationships between death anxiety and religiousness; some studies found a positive relationship between the two while others found an inverse relationship.  Some research argued for a curvilinear relationship between death anxiety and religiousness, explaining that moderately religious participants have more death anxiety than those who are extremely religious or not religious at all. The relationship between religion and death anxiety has been an inconclusive one because of the multidimensional nature of both religion and death anxiety. There is, however, a lack of scholarship on death anxiety and religion in non-western cultures.

    In cultural anthropology, death studies have developed into a substantial research niche. There has been ample attention for practices pertaining to e.g. the process of dying, death as transition, as well as to the interaction with the dead body. Important here, too, is the global perspective on death, also in the sense of engaging with ontologies of life and death outside of the established scientific-medical spectrum.

    This special issue encourages scholars from different disciplines, not just restricted to the ones we mentioned, to contribute to this debate. Of special interest are situations in which religion becomes overbearing and a burden to carry forward in times of death, or if religious practices are obstructed, for example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How do these crisis situations affect the relationship between religion and death? This special issue aims at invoking curiosity, enquiry and interest in looking at the different facets of this topic.

     The special issue on ‘Death and Religion’ invites empirical (qualitative and quantitative), review/conceptual and analytical papers focusing on the different facets of this relationship from scholars in different disciplines such as: Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Theology, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, Thanatology, Health Humanities, Social Care and Social Work. Among others, topics or areas of focus might include:

  • Death anxiety and religiosity in non-western cultures
  • The different perspectives to ‘Extrinsic Religiosity’
  • Is ‘Intrinsic Religiosity’ really the reliever of anxiety?
  • Psychological/sociological/psychosocial significance of death rituals
  • The changing nature of death rituals
  • Personal religious beliefs and ideas about death
  • Belief in afterlife and death anxiety
  • The changing relationship between death and religion due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The non-religious traditions and death
  • Autoethnographic accounts of performing/witnessing death rituals
  • Death as latent and religion as evident in Freudian texts
  • Religious Literacy and the end of life care
  • Extinction as ultimate death and other morbid anxieties of the Anthropocene

Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

– transparent, comprehensive and efficient peer review,

– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions.

Because “Open Theology” is published in Open Access, as a rule, publication costs should be covered by so called Article Publishing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors.

Deadline Extension – TheoLogica CFP on Analytic Science Engaged Theology

The journal TheoLogica  has published a CALL FOR PAPERS on ANALYTIC SCIENCE-ENGAGED THEOLOGY 


Deadline for submissions is now extended to January 31st 2022 


Joanna Leidenhag (University of St Andrews) 

Benedikt Paul Göcke (Ruhr University Bochum/ University of Oxford) 

Analytic theology and Science-Engaged Theology are two of the most exciting  movements within theology in recent years. Both are interdisciplinary endeavours that  seek to use the tools and insights from others sub-disciplines (areas of analytic  philosophy and the natural sciences, respectively) in the service of theology. Analytic  theology and science-engaged theology both maintain the primacy and integrity of the  theological task, whilst simultaneously inviting other disciplines to enrich theological  reflection, criticism, and declaration. 

What these recent trends show is that theologians no longer need to (if they ever did) fear forms of rationalism or empiricism that, in previous generations, have been used to  exclude theological discourse from the public square or academic University. It is clearly  the case that theologians have long appealed to reason and experience as sources for  theological reflection and correction. But in analytic theology and science-engaged  theology, we can see that theologians can also use (as well as critique) the highly  constrained, specialised, and systematised forms of reasoning and evidencing that is  found in analytic philosophy and the natural sciences. Analytic theology and science engaged theology are in this sense complementary movements that signal that theology  has now reached a kind of quiet confidence that does not need to fight, flee or submit to  other forms of inquiry. 

Whilst analytic theology and science-engaged theology have developed separately, they  substantially overlap on the question of how theology can best engage other disciplines.  Thus, there is scope for a further alliance of these movements in the form of analytic  science-engaged theology. Such an analytic science-engaged theology would use the tools  of both analytic philosophy and some specific area of the natural sciences within their  theology. We are inviting papers that exemplify this kind of fine-grained, interdisciplinary,  constructive theological work. We are not primarily looking for papers that discuss the  possibility or nature of analytic science-engaged theology, but for papers that exemplify  this sub-field by exploring a theological question using both scientific and analytic  resources. 

We welcome all forms of analytic science-engaged theology; in particular, we are very  interested in papers that engage a theological tradition outside of mainstream Christianity,  or which prioritize the voices of marginalized groups.” 

EXTENDED Deadline for submissions: October 1st 2021 January 31st 2022 

Full papers should be submitted via our website:  

https://ojs.uclouvain.be/index.php/theologica/index or sent to:  managingeditor.theologica @ gmail.com. In order to contribute equally to scientific international discussions held in several languages, articles written in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are accepted. Visit the TheoLogica homepage for a description of the journal and instructions to authors.

CFP: LATC 2022: Confessing the Church

March 17-18, 2022 at Biola University, La Mirada, CA

The 2022 Los Angeles Theology Conference will engage ecclesiology, that is, the doctrine about the Church. The goal of the conference is to offer constructive proposals for understanding and confessing the doctrine of the Church with historical depth, ecumenical scope, and analytic clarity. We are inviting theologians (philosophical, biblical, historical, and otherwise) to address this vital Christian doctrine.

Call for Papers

Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be sent to LAtheology@gmail.com before October 1, 2021. An acceptable paper will be approximately 3,500 words (to be delivered in 35 minutes with 5–10 minutes for Q&A).

The 9th Annual Los Angeles Theology Conference will be held on March 17-18, 2022 on the campus of Biola University in La Mirada, CA. The theme of the conference is “Confessing the Church.” We are inviting theologians who can situate the doctrine of the Church in its larger systematic theological context, showing its connections and implications with other doctrines.

Beyond the five plenary papers, nine papers will be selected from the responses to this call. We are especially seeking papers that are theologically constructive accounts of the Church, describing how it is related to the catholic confession as being “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.” In particular, we welcome papers that offer reflection on the way in which the Church exhibits (or fails to exhibit) one or more of these features. Preference will be given to papers that offer constructive proposals rather than merely critiques.

The plenary sessions feature Natalie Carnes (Baylor University); Millard J. Erickson (independent scholar); Tom Greggs (University of Aberdeen); Jennifer Powell McNutt (Wheaton College); and Paul Nimmo (University of Aberdeen).

Those with completed doctorate degrees are invited to submit paper proposals on this year’s theme. The focus of the conference is on constructive or systematic theology, rather than upon exegesis, the history of doctrine, or social scientific approaches to religion. Papers that engage the theological tradition as a means of theological retrieval are most welcome.

Open Theology – Call for Papers: “Death and Religion.”

The theological journal, Open Theology invites submissions for the topical issue – “Death and Religion”. (https://www.degruyter.com/journal/key/OPTH/html)

Edited by: Khyati Tripathi, (UPES, India), Jennifer Moran Stritch (Limerick Institute of Technology, Ireland) and Peter G.A.Versteeg (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands).

Call for Papers: The Spirit, the Kingdom & Ecumenism – Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Doctrine of the Church.

The theological thought of Wolfhart Pannenberg has generated significant conversations, since  the publication of Revelation as History in 1961. Since his passing in 2014, dozens (269) of doctoral dissertations written in English have engaged his corpus, launching a new generation of  scholars who have been impacted by his life and work. 

In an effort to gather scholars interested in the legacy of this seminal thinker, the Pannenberg Symposium will host a conference on March 25 & 26, 2022, in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago, Institute for Pastoral Studies and the Hank  Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage. 


Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the publication of Systematic Theology, Vol. 3 in English, this conference will address the following theme: 

The Spirit, The Kingdom, and Ecumenism—Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Doctrine of the Church. 

Thus, we would like to extend a Call for Papers engaging Pannenberg’s thought particularly as developed in Vol. 3 of his Systematic Theology. Potential topics include: 

  • Pneumatology: Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
  • Ecclesiology: Nature and Purpose of the Church, doctrine of election
  • Eschatology: The coming kingdom of God and its establishment in history
  • Sacramental Theology: Ecumenical scope, presence of the Spirit in the Eucharist, ministry/ordination
  • Ecumenism in his doctrine of the Church and his work with the World Council of Churches
  • The Church and Society
  • Pannenberg’s political theology and engagement with liberation theology
  • Natural law
  • Theodicy and the coming of Justice

We are especially interested in engaging scholars from a diversity of denominational, cultural, and theological perspectives  to create a critical and constructive conversation about the significance of Pannenberg’s theology for contemporary thought.  Proposals from a wide range of theological approaches are encouraged. 

To respond to the call for papers, please send a proposal of no more than 500 words to pannenbergsymposium@gmail.com.  Proposals will be evaluated on the contribution they could make to the symposium theme, the clarity of the proposed research  plan, and their significance for the study of Pannenberg’s theology. Proposals should be submitted by July 1, 2021 and will be  subject to a blind review process. Doctoral students and junior scholars are encouraged to submit a proposal. A limited number or registration scholarships are available for those in need. 

The organizers for the conference also have two hopes for future efforts growing out of this conference. First, they will be  seeking publication for a selection of the best papers coming out of the conference as part of an edited volume. Second, our  hope is that the conversation generated by the attendees may give rise to further meetings of the Pannenberg symposium on  a regular basis. Scholars who are interested in such an ongoing project are also encouraged to notify the organizers of their  interest in this broader effort.

TheoLogica Call for Papers: Analytic Science-Engaged Theology

Guest editors: Joanna Leidenhag and Benedikt Göcke

Analytic theology and Science-Engaged Theology are two of the most exciting  movements within theology in recent years. Both are interdisciplinary endeavours  that seek to use the tools and insights from others sub-disciplines (areas of analytic  philosophy and the natural sciences, respectively) in the service of theology. Analytic  theology and science-engaged theology both maintain the primacy and integrity of  the theological task, whilst simultaneously inviting other disciplines to enrich theological reflection, criticism, and declaration. 

What these recent trends show is that theologians no longer need to (if they  ever did) fear forms of rationalism or empiricism that, in previous generations, have  been used to exclude theological discourse from the public square or academic  University. It is clearly the case that theologians have long appealed to reason and  experience as sources for theological reflection and correction. But in analytic theology  and science-engaged theology, we can see that theologians can also use (as well as  critique) the highly constrained, specialised, and systematised forms of reasoning and  evidencing that is found in analytic philosophy and the natural sciences. Analytic  theology and science-engaged theology are in this sense complementary movements  that signal that theology has now reached a kind of quiet confidence that does not  need to fight, flee or submit to other forms of inquiry. 

Whilst analytic theology and science-engaged theology have developed  separately, they substantially overlap on the question of how theology can best engage  other disciplines. Thus, there is scope for a further alliance of these movements in the  form of analytic science-engaged theology. Such an analytic science-engaged theology  would use the tools of both analytic philosophy and some specific area of the natural  sciences within their theology. We are inviting papers that exemplify this kind of fine grained, interdisciplinary, constructive theological work. We are not primarily  looking for papers that discuss the possibility or nature of analytic science-engaged theology, but for papers that exemplify this sub-field by exploring a theological  question using both scientific and analytic resources.  \

We welcome all forms of analytic science-engaged theology; in particular, we  are very interested in papers that engage a theological tradition outside of mainstream  Christianity, or which prioritize the voices of marginalized groups.” 

Deadline for submissions: October 1st, 2021 

Full papers should be submitted via our website:  https://ojs.uclouvain.be/index.php/theologica/index. In order to contribute equally to  scientific international discussions held in several languages, articles written in  English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are accepted. Visit the TheoLogica  homepage for a description of the journal and instructions to authors.

Yours sincerely,

Development of Doctrine – Conference & Call for Papers: June 10-12, 2021.

The Sacra Doctrina Project and St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry are co-sponsoring a conference and call for papers on the topic of….

Title: Development of Doctrine: Revelation, Magisterium, and Human Reason.

Date & Location: June 10-12, 2021| Rochester, NY

Speakers: Matthew Levering (keynote) Stephen Loughlin (plenary) & Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau, O.P. (plenary)

VISIT: https://www.sacradoctrinaproject.org/conference

Vatican I declares that “right reasoning . . .  illumined by [the light of faith], perfects the knowledge of divine things,” but also that, “the doctrine of faith . . . has not been handed down as a philosophic invention to the human mind to be perfected, but has been entrusted as a divine deposit to the Spouse of Christ, to be faithfully guarded and infallibly interpreted.” (Dei Filius, 4)


How does reason perfect faith? How does the theologian perfect knowledge of divine things while faithfully guarding the revelation entrusted to the Church? If, as St. John Henry Newman says, “here below to live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often,” how does our faith stay alive while remaining the same? How do we distinguish between organic and inorganic development of doctrine?

These questions cut to the heart of philosophy and theology as disciplines in service to the Church. Differing answers to these questions are the source of the contemporary crisis in Catholic thought.


Call for Papers:

Please submit a ~300 word abstract by May 12021 to sacradoctrinaproject@gmail.com.

Priority consideration will be given for proposals received by April 1, 2021.

*Proposals already accepted in the 2020 call for papers do not need to resubmit.*

Call For Papers: Scripture & Theology Panel of the 2021 European Academy of Religion Conference.

(This post was taken entirely from the S&T website here.)

Christianity relates to the Bible. Yet here the questions begin: How have the Christian Scriptures been received theologically throughout the Christian tradition? How can biblical studies and systematic theology fruitfully interact and produce tenable arguments for the Christian faith in the context of the 21st century? What is the theological status of the Bible? How does the Bible function as a norm for theological reflection and within theological construction?

The 2021 panel of the study group, “Scripture & Theology,” aims to address questions like these with a particular focus on the relevance of science (or: the sciences). While there is a long-standing tradition of exploring the relationship between theology and science, there has been a lack of attention to the role of science in the triad of scripture, theology and science in general. In the 2021 panel, the Scripture and Theology study group will bring together scholars from a wide range of countries to focus on questions pertaining to the unique relationship of theology and science.

We invite contributions to two tracks:

#1: The general track is for contributions reflecting the relation between scripture and theology in general.

#2: The focus track for contributions reflecting on the role of science(s). Contributions to this track could, for example, address any of the following questions:

  • Can theology live up to the demands which science imposes on theology?
  • How can theology incorporate current research in the fields of evolutionary biology or the neurosciences?
  • How are scripture and theology informed by the sciences? How can the philosophy of science help to understand this process?
  • Can scripture or theology provide a grammar or paradigm for science?
  • In what way does theology presuppose and underlie current scientific endeavours?
  • What does scripture/theology say about the origin and perception of knowledge?
  • How does one’s methodology influence the conclusions drawn from a biblical or theological perspective?
  • From a historical perspective, how have biblical scholars and theologians interacted with science?
  • What are challenges and/or critiques from various scientific fields to scriptural interpretation, theology, and hermeneutics?
  • How does the scientific field understand the role and contribution of Biblical Studies and Theology?

Interdisciplinary research is encouraged as well as contributions from particular disciplines, given the connection to the general issues (track 1) or the relationship between science and religion (track 2) is evident. Contributions from the theological disciplines, such as biblical studies, historical theology, or systematic theology are welcome, as are contributions from the philosophy of science, neurosciences, biology, chemistry, physics and other fields of study. Transdisciplinary contributions are possible as well. In any given case, we ask that potential presenters (a) present original research in the context of the given state of the art(s) and sciences; and (b) prepare papers that make their content accessible to an audience consisting not only of experts in the given field(s).

History of S&T

The first meeting of the study group “Scripture & Theology” was part of the second Annual Conference of the European Academy of Religion, EuARe 2019. The second meeting took place in 2020. Currently we are preparing a first publication, based on the papers presented in the last two years.

In 2021, the study group again convenes scholars from various countries, denominations and fields for research at EuARe 2021. We continue to aim at a critical-constructive dialogue regarding how to be responsible practitioners of theology in dialogue with the entire scientific field.
