Journal of Contemporary Christianities in Context

Editors-in-Chief: Martha Frederiks and Lucien van Liere
Exchange. Journal of Contemporary Christianities in Context is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for multidisciplinary research into the dynamics of Christianities worldwide. The journal focuses on Christianities’ contemporary exchanges and transformations within cultural, socio-economic, political and religious milieus. Though the focus of the journal is on contemporary Christianities, articles that discuss longitudinal perspectives on present-day Christianities and/or study contemporary Christianities’ connectivities with the past are also welcomed. The scope includes developments and new trajectories within intercultural theology, interreligious dialogue, missiology and ecumenics.

Call for Papers
I. Contentious practices of the contemporary missionary movement
Studies of the missionary movement abound, but the critical assessment of missionary endeavors is mainly confined to the colonial period. While academic publications discussing contemporary mission exist, they are mainly celebratory; the contemporary missionary movement is rarely studied in a critical manner. Yet there are numerous issues arising from the contemporary missionary movement that require critical inquiry. To name just a few: missionary families working for faith missions who live on the verge of poverty because pledged donations haven’t materialized, disproportionate missionary presence in a certain regions (e.g. Papua New Guinea, Kazakhstan), proselytism and mission-induced fragmentation of the Christian landscape (e.g. in the Balkans and the Middle East), missionary endeavors that flout ethical concerns in the name of mission and vocation (e.g. John Allen Chau) etc.
Deadline for full papers: October 1 2019.

II. Christian communities and contemporary challenges in the Middle East
The Middle East is facing rapidly changing political, social and religious landscapes. Violent conflict, economic despair, religious extremism, refugee flows and migration are only some of the issues that impact the position and role of churches and Christian organizations in Middle Eastern societies. For this Exchange-special we invite articles addressing the (theological, political, literary etc.) responses by Middle Eastern churches and Christian organizations to current social, religious and political issues facing the region.
Deadline for full papers: 1 December 2019.
