Dr Adriaan van Klinken and Prof. Peter-Ben Smit (Department of Religious Studies and Theology) are guest editors of a special issue of ‘Exchange. Journal of Missiological and Ecumenical Research’. They invite authors to contribute to this issue on ‘Jesus Christ and the Construction of Masculinities in Contemporary World Christianity’.
Contributions are welcomed from authors who conduct original and cutting-edge research on men and masculinities in the multiple and changing contexts of contemporary world Christianity. The papers should particularly investigate the function of Jesus-traditions (i.e. texts, both canonical and non-canonical, images, symbols and doctrines about Jesus Christ) in the construction and/or transformation of masculinities vis-à-vis specific social, cultural and political issues in local contexts of world Christianity.
Submit a proposal
Please submit a one-page proposal for an article before 15 June 2011 to the guest editors by email (email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org). The special issue is scheduled to be published in January 2013.
