Pentecostal––Charismatic Movements Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit provides a forum for scholarly consideration of global phenomena associated with Pentecostalism and Charismatic movements. This Unit provides an arena for a wide array of scholars, disciplinary orientations, and methodological approaches bringing together those working constructively from within these traditions with scholars considering the phenomena from historical, sociological, ethnographic, theological, and other perspectives. The Unit intentionally seeks to encourage a global and pluralist perspective.

Call for Papers: 

The Pentecostal/Charismatic Unit invites individual paper proposals--or complete sessions of related papers, or proposed panel discussion or book-discussion sessions with particular emphasis on:
• Pentecostalism and politics, the influence of Pentecostal/charismatic organizations and/or individuals on 2016 campaign, Pentecostal/Charismatic organizations and Black Lives Matter movement, Standing Rock movement, or other grassroots political action.

• Charismatic Christianity, specifically we are interested in new scholarship on the varied institutions and individuals that comprise Charismatic Christianity such as: C. Peter Wagner & New Apostolic Reformation, Dominionism, and charismatics, or new prophetic movements.

• Global Pentecostalism and resistance movements. We are seeking submissions that can speak to the ethical or theological constructions of Pentecostal pacifism, and other forms of non-violent resistance, particularly in a global context.
