2019 NABPR Call for Papers

Call for Papers

National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion
Annual Meeting
Campbell University School of Law
Raleigh, NC
May 20 – 22, 2019

The National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion (NABPR) invites paper proposals in any area pertaining to scholarship in Religion. In an effort to develop innovative conversations among scholars, papers that create integration between traditional disciplines or broaden the margins of disciplinary conversations are encouraged. Although many NABPR members work primarily in the traditional disciplines of Biblical Studies, Church History, Theology, etc., proposals are encouraged from any field, including Ministry Studies.

Paper or panel proposals on any aspect of pedagogy related to the teaching of Religion are encouraged.

The 2019 Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Baptist History and Heritage Society (BHHS) and the Association of Ministry Guidance Professionals (AMGP). We encourage proposals on topics that would appeal to the overlapping interests of NABPR, BHHS and AMGP.

Please note: Members of AMGP should send paper proposals through NABPR. BHHS will issue a separate Call for Papers with instructions specific to BHHS members.

Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. Graduate students must register for the meeting, but the cost is waived, regardless of whether a paper is proposed.

Proposals must be received by January 15, 2019. Send a 300-word abstract electronically to:

Dr. Steven R. Harmon
sharmon@gardner-webb.edu Papers will be scheduled into a 30 minute time period, including discussion.

Proposals will be accepted or denied by March 1, 2019.
