Systematic Theology

2021 Call for Papers

George Gilmore, Spring Hill College (Alabama) 

The theme of this year’s annual meeting: “The Human in a Dehumanizing World: Re-examining Theological Anthropology and Its Implications,” lends itself extensively to the discipline of Systematic Theology.  Proposals are encouraged across the board in subsections of Systemtics, such as the definition of the “human” in ecclesiology, sacraments and Christology, to name just a few. One of our plenary speakers is Dr. Karen Kilby who has written extensively on the systematic theology of Karl Rahner and Hans Urs von Balthasar. Proposals inter-relating all three would be welcome. We may be able to set up a panel to discuss the work of Dr. Kilby in relation to either of those systematic theologians, although her most recent work has been in theodicy and the Trinity.

Proposals should be 2050-300 words in length and include one's current institutional affiliation & position. Proposals should be emailed to by January 15, 2021. Scholars will be notified of the status of their proposals by mid-February.

The College Theology Society is a registered, non-profit professional society and a Related Scholarly Organization of the American Academy of Religion.
