Call for Papers

POWER, AUTHORITY, LOVE: Writing, Rites and Right

We warmly invite scholars, activists, artists and other practitioners to explore and expound feminist understandings of power, authority and love, both as distinct concepts or experiences and in the interrelatedness. The scope of papers is broad. Diverse contributions will, however, be connected through one of three lenses:

  1. “writing”—focusing on engagement with feminist theological work on power, authority or love;
  2. “rites”—focusing on ritual expressions of power, authority or love informed by feminist theology;
  3. “right”—focusing on getting power, authority or love “right” in practice from feminist perspective.

Presentations of 20 minutes (only and firmly) will be followed by 15 minutes discussion.

How to submit a paper

Proposals of 250 words are due by July 7, 2019, to tfraser@divinity.edu.au

Please include your name, academic or other relevant affiliation, paper title, and a statement of how the proposal is related to the conference theme.

Acceptance will be advised by 29 July 2019.

Selected papers will be published after peer review in a special issue of a journal and/or a collection of essays arising from the event.
