Christian Systematic Theology Unit

Call for Proposals

The Christian Systematic Theology Section invites proposals for individual papers or complete panels related to our theme of Joy, Justice, and Hope. We welcome papers that engage one or more of these three interrelated notions as deployed in Christian theology. Papers should be constructive or synthetic rather than merely historical or analytical in nature, but grounding the arguments in pre-existing texts from various traditions and discussions is desired. We especially invite proposals related to the following sub-themes:

  • Theology and Race
  • Queer Theology
  • Theology and Gender
  • Transhumanism
  • Salvation
  • Eschatology and/or the Apocalyptic
  • Theology and Ecology
  • Theology and Disability
  • Death and/or Resurrection
  • The Image of God

Statement of Purpose

This Unit promotes new constructive work in Christian systematic theology that is in dialogue with the historical Christian theological traditions on the one hand and with all aspects of the contemporary context on the other — intellectual movements, methodologies, multiple theological and religious perspectives, and ethical/social/political contexts.
