The Political Theology Network is calling for submissions for its inaugural essay contest. Authors should submit essays of no more than 1000 words that speak to the question: To whom should we, working in political theology, listen, and how? Essays will be judged by an interdisciplinary panel of scholars for their insight, creativity, and persuasiveness. Submissions from tradition-based as well as secular scholars, religious leaders, and activists are welcome.
Essays must be submitted by October 15, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Essay Contest Submission.” Only one submission per author please. Essays should follow closely the Style and Format guidelines published on the Political Theology Network’s website (with the exception that essays should be a maximum of 1000 words). The essays of up to five semifinalists will be published as a symposium on the Political Theology Network and the winner of the contest and a cash prize of $750 will be announced at the Political Theology Network’s reception at the AAR/SBL in Denver on November 17, 2018. Please contact Kyle Lambelet at email@example.com with any questions.
