The Misogynoir to Mishpat Research Network (M2M) is sharing the call for papers from the Society for the Study of Theology (SST) located in the United Kingdom. They are open to both in-person and virtual participation. They are also open to a variety of academic (or non-academic) backgrounds including: doctoral students, early career researchers, independent scholars, and mid or senior level academics, and non-academics. Please see their call for papers listed below. Their broad theme this year is “power.” We also included their link in case you have any questions. Papers are due by 3 March 2023 (see update notice below).
Short Papers on Power
Short Papers on ‘Power’ – SST (theologysociety.org.uk)
As members of the Society know, there is an opportunity at the conference for participants, should they wish, to offer short papers on the Conference theme within small scale sessions. Several of these will run in parallel, with a group size usually between fifteen and thirty people. Short papers must be no longer than 20 mins, with a further 10 mins for questions and discussion. It may also be possible to obtain a bursary towards the cost of the Conference by offering a short paper.
Short Papers on the Conference Theme: ‘Power’
We invite proposals on the theme of “Power” for 2023. The theme is broadly conceived and you are at liberty to interpret it in any way that seems appropriate to you, as long as it arises out of, and seeks to address, power as it finds expression in theology, ecclesiology, the psychology of religion, sociology of religion and other cognate disciplines. Please also note that The Society is committed to increasing its own inclusivity and diversity, as well as that of the theological academy. We welcome, therefore, papers which address questions of gender, sexuality, ability and disability, post-colonialism, ethnicity and race in conversation with the conference theme.
DEADLINE for submissions: Friday 3 March 2023
Proposals for short papers should be submitted via the form below. They must include a short title (100 characters max) and an abstract of 200 words, and when presented should be no more than 20 minutes long.
As with the Conference last year, we shall be offering participants the opportunity to attend parts of the Conference remotely. Should you wish to do that and are successful with your submission, we shall also provide for the possibility of remote presentation within dedicated remote sessions. Please state on the form if you are considering this form of attendance at the Conference.
If you have any questions about short papers please contact one of our short paper convenors:
Anupama Ranawana (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Nina Kurlberg (email: email@example.com)
Anthony Reddie (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
You will be notified, by email, by 3rd March 2023 as to whether your paper has been accepted.
