CALL FOR PAPERS
for a topical issue of Open Theology
"The Bible and Migration”


Edited by: C. L. Crouch (Fuller Theological Seminary)



DESCRIPTION


“Open Theology” (https://www.degruyter.com/view/journals/opth/opth-overview.xml) invites submissions for the topical issue "The Bible and Migration”, prepared in collaboration with the conference "The Bible on the Move: Toward a Biblical Theology of Migration,” held at Fuller Theological Seminary in January 2020.

This special issue asks how cutting-edge biblical scholarship should inform conversation about and action relating to migration in the twenty-first century, bridging the gap between biblical studies, theology, and activism. Articles should examine how the biblical texts reflect diverse migrant experiences, as well as ways in which these texts reflect theologically on migration and appropriate responses to it among migrants and host communities. Articles may also critically interrogate the Bible’s use in arguments over migration and migrants’ reception by host communities. For purposes of this issue, ‘migration’ is understood to include refugee movements, internal and external displacements, and a wide spectrum of voluntary and involuntary migration motivated by famine, war, economics, and other causes. Contributions from the perspective of the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament or the New Testament are welcome, as are contributions that seek to take the perspective of both into account.


Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

– transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,
– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions.

Because "Open Theology" is published in Open Access model, as a rule, publication costs should be covered by so called Article Publishing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors.
Authors without access to publishing funds are encouraged to discuss potential discounts or waivers with Managing Editor of the journal Katarzyna Tempczyk (katarzyna.tempczyk@degruyter.com) before submitting their manuscripts.
