Liberal Theologies Unit and Schleiermacher Unit

Call for Papers: 

Trust, Power, and Dialogue in Schleiermacher and Liberal Theology

We invite paper proposals that attend to the interplay between trust, power, and/or dialogue which invites new reflection, both historical and constructive, in post-truth times. Possible topics can include: communal dialogical practices promoting trusting truthful relations; cultivation of the affective and virtues promoting community; analyses of power and dialogical theories; pedagogies cultivating communal practice; gender and race; and theories of truth. We especially welcome papers that engage the thought of Friedrich Schleiermacher and the theologians situated broadly in relation to liberal theologies while making an argument that attends to the current political, cultural, and/or religious situations we face. Schleiermacher’s letters, sermons, hermeneutics, and/or staatslehre may prove especially productive for this constellation of topics, though we welcome engagement with any part of his work and/or theologians building on his legacy.
