Call for Proposals

This Group encourages partnerships between biblical scholars and constructive theologians and welcomes proposals that work across disciplines. This year, we invite proposals that explore:

  • The relationship between disability and postcoloniality

  • The significance of the transfiguration passages/“event” in biblical/theological studies in relation to philosophical and theoretical explorations

In order to encourage more interactive sessions, participants in the sessions will be asked to submit their papers by October 1 to be made available before the Annual Meeting upon request. Papers will not be read at the sessions. Instead, presenters will be given a short time to present their major ideas, and the bulk of the session time will be given over to discussion. This Group also plans to host an invited roundtable featuring the question, “Why (do) theology?”


This Group encourages dialogue between constructive theologians and biblical scholars, dealing with themes of interest to both disciplines in the wake of postmodernity. We encourage creative proposals that work at the intersection of biblical studies, contemporary philosophy, and theology.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposer names are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee members during review, but visible to Chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection.
