Call For Papers

Christ Topic Session

Administrative Team:

Colleen Carpenter, St. Catherine University (Convener)
Susie Babka, University of San Diego
Elisabeth Vasko, Duquesne University

Convention Theme: Sensus Fidelium

Session Description:
The Christology section welcomes proposals on a wide range of christological themes. In light of this year’s theme, we are especially interested in papers that address the sensus fidelium with respect to christology. For example, many of our students are functional Docetists: what are the implications of widespread misunderstanding of classical christological teaching? We are also interested in proposals that address understandings of Jesus or christology that have arisen out of local communities or contexts, particularly understandings of Jesus or Christology that are seen in cultural and/or aesthetic practice.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Proposal should be not more than 250 words.
  • You should also include a 100 words précis that will be posted on the CTSA website should your paper be accepted.
  • Include full name and contact information of all participants, including e-mail.
  • Indicate whether your presenters will be requiring A/V equipment. 
  • CTSA guidelines require that those making proposals ordinarily be associate or full members in good standing with their dues paid up.  Anyone with an associate or full membership application on file can also submit a proposal if they expect to be accepted for membership in the upcoming June convention. 

Deadline: September 1, 2014.  Please submit proposals to: Colleen Carpenter, cmcarpenter@stkate.edu. You will be notified by e-mail whether your paper has been accepted by September 14, 2014.
