Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit fosters scholarship and scholarly exchanges that analyze, criticize, and interpret the thought or impact of Paul Tillich (1886–1965) and that use his thought — or use revisions of or reactions against his thought — to deal with contemporary issues in theology, religion, ethics, or the political, social, psychotherapeutic, scientific, or artistic spheres of human culture. We cooperate with the North American Paul Tillich Society (a Related Scholarly Organization of the AAR), which is linked with the German, French, and other Tillich societies. Papers at our sessions are published in the Society’s quarterly Bulletin without prejudice to their also appearing elsewhere.

Call for Papers: 

The Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Unit will accept proposals for 2 sessions:

● In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of James Cone’s Black Theology and Black Power (1969) and the productive challenges of Black theology, the Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture group invites papers exploring the intersection of and/or tensions between Black theology and Paul Tillich in terms of culture, context, correlation, and symbol, inter al. We wish to explore not only the historical resonances, but also to take seriously the ambiguities that arise when considering that Tillich inspired many Black theologians, while insufficiently considering the plight of minorities in his adopted homeland.

● In addition, we will host a pre-organized panel on "Tillich and Other Religions." Panelists are invited to consider Tillich's understanding of world religions and compare his thought and method to that of another faith tradition.
