Special Issue "Political Theology: The Next Generation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 2709
I am pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Religions, titled “Political Theology: The Next Generation”. This Special Issue aims at exploring the range of political theologies within the broader scope of Abrahamitic traditions, where critiques and affirmations of, and alternatives to, the secular, liberal political order are presented. Your contribution could be in a form of a critical theological analysis of a political project, literary or theoretical text, broader political thought, or innovative conceptual framing.
This Special Issue aims to encourage theoretically, philosophically, and theologically driven as well as potentially empirically grounded scholarship on the role of political theology in the development of social and political engagement among Christian, Islamic, Jewish, and other traditions.
Submitted articles should be between 8,000 and 10,000 words. This limitation is inclusive of the main document, references, tables, and figures. These limitations do not include appendices that will be published online. Papers shorter or longer than the set limitations are likely to be rejected without review. The submitted papers are to follow the format and structure of published Religions articles. All manuscripts are subject to the standard double-blind peer-review process. When making your submission please select the option to designate the text as part of the ‘Political Theology Special Issue in Religions.’
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include, and are not limited to, the following:
- Christian political theology (expressions, case studies).
- Islamic political theology (expressions, case studies).
