CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Unit and Liberation Theologies Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

The Legacies of Enrique Dussel, Jorge Pixley, and Franz Hinkelammert

The SBL’s Latino/a/e and Latin American Biblical Interpretation and Poverty in the Biblical World program units, together with the AAR’s Liberation Theologies and Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society program units, will host a session that honors three leading figures of liberation theology who passed away last year: Enrique Dussel, George/Jorge Pixley, and Franz Hinkelammert. We invite proposals that engage their intellectual legacies, especially by considering their impact on contemporary religious thought and biblical interpretation; the relevance of their ideas for addressing current social and economic crises; intersections between theology, philosophy, and biblical studies in their work; comparative analyses of their contributions and methodologies; and interpretations of scriptural texts that employ their thought to examine the texts’ economic and political dimensions and implications.
