Call for Proposals

We encourage individual paper, papers session, or roundtable proposals in all areas of scriptural reasoning. Successful proposals will reflect theoretical and methodological sophistication and engagement with existing scholarship along with innovative examinations of scriptural reasoning. We particularly encourage creative panel proposals that test the boundaries of panel format and content. We suggest that papers examine brief scriptural passages — drawing on both textual scholarship and reception history — and suggest how they address contemporary readers’ concerns. Participants will be asked to circulate drafts of their papers in advance and revise their papers in conversation with each other. We especially invite papers or prearranged panel proposals related to the following topics:

  • Theology and scriptural reasoning

  • Animals and reasoning in scriptural texts

  • Studying, learning, and teaching

  • The Qur’an as a process of scriptural reasoning

  • Supersession

  • Scriptural reasoning’s engagement with non-Abrahamic traditions

We welcome proposals on other topics as well and encourage complete session proposals.

Mission

“Scriptural reasoning” is a practice of interreligious scriptural study — as illustrated in the Journal of Scriptural Reasoning. This Group provides one “home,” within the AAR itself, for sustained study of the Abrahamic scriptural traditions, for exploring postmodern approaches to the study of scriptural religions, for interreligious and intercultural fellowship as an essential aspect of study, and as an experimental workshop in the practices of collaborative, dialogic, and interdisciplinary study.
