Call for Proposals
This Group is especially interested in papers that:
- Fit under the heading “Anticipating 2017.” With global commemorations and celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the nailing of the 95 theses to the Wittenberg door just five years away, we seek proposals that discuss what should be addressed in 2017 and how those commemorations become a time of imagining the global relevance of 1517 for our present and future
- Address different aspects and ramifications of Augustine’s and/or Luther’s interpretation of the Old Testament texts — for a cosponsored session with the Augustine and Augustinianisms Group. Papers that bring either Augustine and/or Luther into conversation with various methodological and global perspectives are most welcome
This Group seeks to provide an avenue for a comprehensive conversation on both Lutheran history and thought in the global context. In so doing, it is able to draw on an immensely rich tradition that goes far beyond Lutheran parochial interests as it includes the relationship to other Christian traditions as well as cultures in the global South.
