CALL FOR PAPERS  for a topical issue of  Open Theology  "Women and Gender in the Bible and the Biblical
World”           Edited by:         Zanne Domoney-Lyttle (University of
Glasgow)  Sarah Nicholson (University of Glasgow)        DESCRIPTION     “Open Theology” ( www.degruyter.com www.degruyter.com ) invites submissions for the topical issue
"Women and Gender in the Bible and the Biblical World”, prepared in
collaboration with the conference "Women and Gender in the Bible and
the Ancient World", held by University of Glasgow.     This
special issue aims to explore, interrogate and reflect on the ways in which
women are understood, contextualised and represented in the text of the Bible
that has developed, in various ways, a foundational significance for Western
culture. We welcome papers that could contribute to this discussion by
addressing, for example, gendered relationships between the human and the
divine; compulsory heterosexuality; sociology of gender in biblical texts; the
pathologizing of women's experiences; reception of biblical texts; gendered
violence in biblical texts; post-colonial approaches to gendered
representations of biblical women or themes of transgression, embodiment,
power, performance, emotion, redemption or loss within biblical narratives. The
focus of the issue is on the complex relationships between biblical women and
the worlds they inhabit - including the worlds into which they have been
relocated through recreation and interpretation - in order to illuminate
reframings of, and contested answers to, Simone de Beauvoir's question:
"What is a woman?"        Authors publishing their articles in the
