CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Bonhoeffer: Theology and Social Analysis Unit and Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Unit

Call for Papers: 

In this joint session between the Bonhoeffer: Theology and Social Analysis and Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Units invite papers which explore religious responses to fascism inspired by the thought of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Paul Tillich. The papers may explore: 1) the discrete ways these theologians grappled with the issue in their own context(s); 2) theological postures or practices which they offer that may be used in the contemporary context; 3) the use of philosophical, cultural, and/or political criticism to illuminate their theological resistance to fascism; or 4) theological theories of resistance shaped by the particular systems articulated by Bonhoeffer and/or Tillich. While this joint session is envisioned as a papers session proposals for prearranged panels will be considered.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
