Call for Papers



Soma is now accepting articles on the theme of “Theology and Globalization” for its inaugural (2011) edition. Along with a guest editorial by Rowan Williams, the first edition will feature a lead article by Joerg Rieger. In his book, Theology and Globalization (Abingdon Press, 2010) Rieger argues that theology cannot be understood without globalization(s) and globalization(s) cannot be understood without theology. Rieger asks how understandings and practices of globalization(s) impact Christian practices and Christian beliefs about God. What type of power is at work in globalization(s) and how does that relate to visions of divine power? Can any practice of globalization enhance the well-being of human beings?

Articles addressing these issues and related issues will be considered for the first edition of Soma. Articles should be no more than 8,000 words. Submissions should be sent to by 30 January 2011.
