The Princeton Theological Review Call For Papers
Spring 2016 Theme: “Theology and Violence”
The Christian faith has always shared a complex relationship with violence. Beginning with the biblical narrative, and continuing through our present-day experiences of systemic and global violence, Christians have offered rich reflection on this topic. Continuing in this reflective tradition, The Princeton Theological Review welcomes submissions related to the theme of violence. All graduate students and early career scholars are invited to submit papers from various disciplinary perspectives (Ethics, Systematic or Historical Theology, Practical Theology, Church History, Biblical Studies, etc.) as it relates to the theme of theology and violence. We also encourage interdisciplinary papers on violence from other perspectives within the social sciences (anthropology, sociology, communication, etc.). Submissions should be 4500-5000 words.
Papers and abstracts should be conversant with recent research and scholarship. There are no restrictions on research methodology. Contributions to this call for papers should not have been previously published. All submissions will undergo blind peer-review.
To submit a paper, please email the full paper, along with the items listed below, to the General Editor Brandon Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2016.
