#CFP Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Theology October 13, 2018

This call for papers came my way and seemed worth circulating:



for a topical issue of Open Theology

Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Theology


Edited by: 

Dr. Claire Clivaz, Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Lausanne, CH), Vital-IT

Dr. Garrick V. Allen, Dublin City University (Ireland)



“Open Theology” (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue “Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Theology”.


The topic comprises all topics related to the digitization of biblical and theological studies, from theoretical or epistemological thoughts to the presentation of digital projects. For this special issue, we encourage contributions that consider the history of biblical studies or systematic theology, and explain that ways in which the transition to the digital media will (or will not) affect the definition and the practices of these disciplines. We also encourage systematic contributions that deal with new digital challenges such as serendipity vs teleology, or intent of the users vs intentio auctoris or operis, or artificial intelligence vs divine providence. Finally, we encourage contributions that focus on Bible and digital media, particularly digital storytelling and multimedia biblical narratives.


Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

– transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,

– an efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter Open’s e-technology,

– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions.
