Dr. Oeste will deliver the keynote lecture, Feasting with the Enemy: Redemptive Readings of Biblical War Texts. In line with the topic of Dr. Oeste’s lecture, we invite submission of high quality papers on any topic related to the broad theme of “Peace and Violence in Scripture and Theology,” though papers falling outside this area will also be considered.

We welcome papers from all theological disciplines, including biblical, historical, systematic, philosophical, moral, or pastoral theology, and theology that engages culture, the church, or other academic fields. Papers should be scholarly but not highly specialized presentations of about 25 minutes, aimed at an audience of students, pastors, and faculty from across the spectrum of theological disciplines. Proposals should be approximately 250 words in length. Please prepare them for blind review and submit as an email attachment, accompanied by a short curriculum vitae or resumé in a separate file. To facilitate anonymous review of proposals, please include your name, institutional affiliation, contact information, and the title of your proposal in the body of your email.
