Special Issue: Masculinities in World Christianity
Call for Papers Date:
As guest editors of a special issue of the academic journal Exchange (published with Brill), we are issuing a call for papers on the theme of ‘Jesus Christ and the Construction of Masculinities in Contemporary World Christianity’.
We are inviting authors who conduct original and cutting-edge research on men and masculinities in the multiple and changing contexts of contemporary world Christianity.
The papers we are looking for should particularly investigate the function of Jesus-traditions (i.e. texts, both canonical and non-canonical, images, symbols and doctrines about Jesus Christ) in the construction and/or transformation of masculinities vis-ŕ-vis specific social, cultural and political issues in local contexts of world Christianity.
One-page proposals for articles should be submitted before 15 June, 2011, to the guest editors by email (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com).
