Call for Proposals
This Group seeks proposals for papers on the following topics:
- Practices of theological education and pastoral formation in World Christianity, especially from a gendered perspective
- Indigenous peoples in/and World Christianity — gendered perspectives are welcome
- Christian-Muslim relations in the Mediterranean milieu, broadly in all time periods, from a variety of methodological perspectives. Topics may include pilgrimage, visual and material culture, artistic expression, popular culture, intellectual exchanges, cooperation, and conflict. Focus on particular locales — Catalunya, Provence, Turkey, Serbia, Sarajevo, Constantinople/Istanbul, Fez, Jerusalem — is welcome. Proposals may address Christian–Muslim relations in the context of broader interreligious relations with Jewish and other religious communities (for a possible cosponsored session with the Middle Eastern Christianity Consultation)
- Orthodox Christianities in the Eastern Mediterranean and Northern Africa during the late Ottoman, Modern, and Contemporary eras (for a possible cosponsored session with the Eastern Orthodox Studies Group)
This Group seeks to explore intercultural, interconfessional, and interreligious dynamics of Christianity as a world religion, bringing into conversation scholars in the disciplines of history, mission studies, theology, sociology of religion, and religious studies.
