Atlanta Skylines of and from Atlantic Station

Deadline:  Thursday, March 5, 2014, 5:00 PM EST, through

About the Pauline Epistles Section:

The Pauline Epistles section aims to stimulate critical analysis of the letters of Paul by offering a platform for new research. The section maintains a historical orientation and typically focuses on situating the undisputed Pauline letters in their immediate social, political, religious, and intellectual contexts.

Call for Papers:

Scholars of all ranks are encouraged to submit papers for our three open sessions. Proposals should explain the arguments of the paper in clear, succinct, and compelling ways. Would-be presenters should also specify the kind of data that they will use to contextualize Paul’s writings, whether this involves specific texts, traditions, or material culture. Those whose primary interests are in reflecting on normative theological issues may find that other sections provide a more appropriate venue for this work.
