Call for Proposals

This Group asks “what does liberation theology mean in and for the twenty-first century?” We encourage crossover dialogue — between contexts and between disciplines — and reflection on the implications of liberationist discourse for the transformation of theology as a whole, both methodologically and theologically. We are especially interested in papers that apply liberation theology to other disciplines, bring other disciplines into liberation theology, have applications beyond Christianity, and so forth. In addition, we are interested in proposals for a possible cosponsored session with the Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Group, radical political and liberation theology — Tillich’s legacy and significance. What is the importance of Tillich for contemporary radical political theology? Unlike much mainstream contemporary political theology, thinking from the margins — from the politically and theologically underrepresented, including various liberation theologies — draws creatively from the work of Paul Tillich. What are the further prospects for work in this area?
