AAR Announcement: Open and Relational Theologies Call for Papers

Here’s the Open and Relational Theologies call for papers. The submission deadline is March 1, and the AAR website is now open for submissions.

2013 Open and Relational Theologies Call

The Open and Relational Theologies group plan to explore two themes. First, we invite proposals exploring Postcolonial theology in relation to themes common in Open, Relational, and/or Process theologies. Such themes may include but are not limited to power, love, social structures, redemption, justice, violence, forgiveness, salvation, and authority. We prefer proposals addressing these themes or others from overtly Open, Relational, or Process theological perspectives.

Second, we invite papers exploring the Emergent church. Proposals may explore theological, social, institutional, cultural, ecclesial, or doctrinal issues or related matters. We prefer proposals that show a link or potential connection between Emergent church issues and Open, Relational, and/or Process thought.
