Spring 2018 Call for Papers Released
Art as a Voice for the Church
Graduate students and early-career scholars are invited to submit papers to the spring 2018 edition of the Princeton Theological Review. We welcome papers from various disciplinary perspectives (theology, philosophy, church history, biblical studies, social sciences, etc.) as they relate to the theme of art and the church. How does theology manifest in all different forms of art (painting, poetry, photography, sculpture, music, theater, film, literature, dance, or any other creative endeavors)? How does artistic expression give voice to piety, critique, worship, or spiritual struggle? How has art influenced and been influenced by biblical interpretations, theological movements, historical context, or cultural conditions? Why is art such a powerful medium for Christian expression?
All submissions are due January 8, 2018.
There are two types of submissions for this year’s journal:
1. Paper submissions should be between 4500 and 5000 words. All papers should be formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition). Where CMS does not offer specific guidance, please consult SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd edition. They should engage with recent research and scholarship. There are no restrictions on research methodology. Submissions must be original work, must not have been previously published, and will undergo double blind peer-review.
2. Art submissions should be original pieces of art: this might be a song, a photograph, a painting, a poem, a video, or something else you have created. Submissions should also include a brief reflection (400–500 words) that explains the connection between this piece of art and its theology for the church. We encourage creative, thoughtful submissions of all kinds; non-visual art may be published online. All reflections should be formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition). Submissions must be original work, must not have been previously published, and will undergo double blind peer-review.
