Political Theology Today is seeking regular contributors, as well as occasional articles, addressing a variety of both timely and more “timeless” subject matter.
Topics in which we are especially interested include:
- Current events. Anything presently in the news having to do with politics and religion, not only in the United States and Europe but in parts of the world that do not necessarily receive adequate attention in the Western media.
- Theoretical discussions. Broader, more nuanced, foundational discussions of the nature and definition of political theology along with its relationship to political philosophy; also, the role of religion in the history and practice of politics in general.
- Global and international concerns. Theological, ethical, and other kinds of normative issues that are either international or intercultural in scope and demand certain kinds of specific expertise or strategies of analysis.
We also invite proposals for symposia, interviews, or discussions involving groups of authors or experts.
Issues of Race, Class, Ethnic, Religious, and Gender Identity. Critical essays on a spectrum of topics having to do with race, class, ethnic, religious and gender identity that serve to illuminate the complexity and deeper currents cirulating within the world in which we live.
Articles should be a minimum of 800 words and a maximum of 2500 words. For specific guidelines on submission, consult our “Style and Format” page.
We invite and encourage you to pitch to us, or brainstorm about, an idea for an upcoming article to Carl Raschke, our managing editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PTT has now been publishing almost six years. Designed as an online adjunct to the print journal Political Theology, posts for the blog started rolling out right after the first of the year in 2011.
Despite the historical predilection for print media, academic publishing is increasingly moving online, guaranteeing not only a much wider readership but also the opportunity for scholars and public intellectuals to respond in a more immediate and provocative manner than has been possible in the past.
We hope to hear from you soon.
