Christian Scholars' Conference

Call for Papers for the 2019 CSC

Business and Economics

Multiple calls for papers, panels and posters

This is a call for papers, panels, and posters for the Business and Economics section of the 2019 Christian Scholars Conference, to be held at Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, Texas, June 5-7, 2019. We will have traditional 90-minute paper and panel sessions and also invite Pecha Kucha submissions. (A Pecha Kucha is a 6 min 40 sec presentation by a presenter who has 20 images automatically advancing at 20 second intervals behind them.)

Topics

We especially encourage submissions related to the conference theme, Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth, and Beauty.” Typically thought to be devoted to “less elevated” concerns, Wisdom, Goodness, Truth, and Beauty are not terms normally associated with Business and Economics. How do the principles, practices, and policies of business and economics promote or reveal wisdom, goodness, truth, and beauty? Or are those things beyond the scope of our professional and academic expertise? Must we confine ourselves to the study of useful, but ultimately mundane, aspects of material existence—to what the economist Alfred Marshall called “the ordinary business of life”?

 

We also seek submissions on the topic Teaching 2019: Content, Method, and Innovation

 

What new issues are appearing in your courses? The gig economy? Lean start-ups? Multicommunication? Stewardship? Trade wars?

 

What new methods are you using or refining? TED talks? Web-sites? Flipped classrooms?

 

Student texting? Team projects? From what sources are you deriving ideas? Classical rhetoric? The visual arts? How are you innovating?

In teaching at a Christian college, business faculty face challenges. We can better meet them if we exchange ideas and information. This session will allow you to share your perspectives, to learn from your colleagues, and to enrich your classroom.

Other possible topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Leadership
  • Women in leadership
  • Spirituality and leadership--including servant leadership
  • Leading social enterprises
  • Next generation leadership/Leadership development
  • Business skills for church leaders
  • Business Ethics/Ethical perspectives and reasoning/Virtue ethics for business and economics
  • Social responsibility of business
  • Business, Christianity, and culture
  • Economic development
  • Business as Mission (BAM) - including missional entrepreneurship
  • Information systems/AI/Big data
  • Preparing students for the “gig” economy

For Teaching 2019: Content, Method, and Innovation, please e-mail abstracts (maximum 300 words) by February 15 to Lamar Reinsch at Lubbock Christian University (Lamar.Reinsch@LCU.edu).

For all other proposals, please e-mail abstracts (maximum 300 words) by February 15, 2019 to Andy Borchers at Lipscomb University (andy.borchers@lipscomb.edu). All abstracts will undergo blind review.

NEW THIS YEAR

The former “Business, Engineering, and Computing” section is now two distinct sections: “Business and Economics” and “Engineering and Computing.” More information on Engineering and Computing is forthcoming. 

Christianity, Literature and Language

Call for Papers #1

The Revenge of the Aesthetic: Beauty and Morality in the Contemporary Humanities

Classical theories of beauty and modern aesthetic theories have a fraught relationship. Classical and theological texts understand beauty as deeply intertwined with that which is good and true. Post-enlightenment theories, however, tend to view beauty as separable from these transcendentals. In the nineteenth century, for instance, Oscar Wilde proposes an ars gratia artes (art for the sake of art) approach to beauty, thereby freeing it from moral concerns. In the twentieth century and beyond, critics complicate the connection between beauty, goodness, and truth by viewing it as entangled with political interest. This panel invites papers that explore the relationship between beauty and morality in the wake of these modern and post-modern challenges. Proposals may consider the role of beauty and morality from a literary, theological, or philosophical approach. Successful proposals may argue for the relationship between beauty and morality in literary texts from any period. They may also explore the consequences of the anti-aesthetic approach in contemporary thought as well as consider the value of reasserting the role of beauty in pointing us toward goodness.

Please submit paper proposals of 250 words to Matthew Bardowell at Missouri Baptist University (matthew.bardowell@mobap.edu) by February 15, 2018. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by February 28.

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Call for Papers #2

"Linguistics and the Pursuit of Goodness, Truth, and Beauty"

As the scientific study of language, linguistics investigates one of the central aspects of what makes us human. Language studies can, therefore, provide a window into God’s creativity and into the beauty of God’s world and improve our understanding of both universal principles of language structure and specific applications for effective language use in various contexts (second language instruction, conversational interactions, intercultural communication, translation, missions, among others).

This section invites papers from theoretical and applied linguistics exploring the relationship between language study and the pursuit of goodness, truth, and beauty.

Please submit the following information by 11:59 (CT) on February 15 to Olga Pahom, Lubbock Christian University, at olga.pahom@lcu.edu. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by February 28.

(1) Author information

(a) Your first and last name

(b) Institutional affiliation

(c) E-mail address

(d) Bio (100 words)

(2) Submission

(a) Presentation title

(b) Abstract (200-300 words)

Note: If your abstract is accepted, you will also be asked to submit a shortened version of your abstract (85-100 words).

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Civil Rights

Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth and Wisdom

American Christianity, broadly, and the Churches of Christ, specifically, has a tenuous history of race relations.  To truly engage in conciliatory healing, it is important that we pursue knowledge in our quest for goodness, truth and wisdom. This difficult process can shape the future of our faith tradition. This section invites paper proposals from researchers in relevant fields in the social sciences and theology that examine the racialized culture of Churches of Christ, and the role that our tradition has played in developing and maintaining social structures that create oppression.  Furthermore, this section seeks proposals that inspire discourse towards strategies for addressing contemporary issues of race relations within this fellowship, specifically, and throughout society, broadly.

Proposals of 300-400 words will be accepted through January 18, 2019.  Those submitting will be notified of the status of their proposals by February 15, 2019.  Accepted proposals must be completed and submitted to the session chair by May 17, 2019.  Please send proposals and queries to Tanya Smith Brice, Bowie State University, at tbrice@bowiestate.edu.

For a second call, please scroll to Early Career Scholars in Theological Disciplines to see "Wisdom and Terror: A Call for Papers".

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Early Career Scholars in Theological Disciplines

Wisdom and Terror: A Call for Papers

In Lynched: The Power of Memory in a Culture of Terror, Angela D. Sims explores the memories of African Americans on lynching. While examining the relationship between lynching, race, class, and gender, Sims shows how story, memory, and narratives of hope witness toward justice in a culture of fear and violence. The Early Career Scholars in Theological Disciplines and Civil Rights Sections invite 100-word abstracts of proposed papers that engage with the Christian Scholars’ Conference theme: Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth, and Beauty, with particular attention to the relationship between wisdom and cultures of terror and violence. Presentations may engage with Lynched directly, or presentations may relate to the book. Early career scholars in all theological disciplines (history, ethics, theology, biblical studies, pastoral theology, interreligious studies, homiletics, etc.) are strongly encouraged to submit. Angela D. Sims will be the respondent for this panel. Abstracts should be emailed as an attachment to Stanley Talbert (stt2117@utsnyc.edu) no later than February 18, 2019.

Film Studies: Call for Papers #2

Peer Reviewed Session Title: “21st Century Identity Politics and American Sci-Fi and Fantasy Films”

For this panel we seek a broad range of critical perspectives that interrogate issues of national identity, race, class, and/or gender, through formal analysis, literary analysis, genre studies, interdisciplinary approaches, and/or historical and sociocultural contexts. Topics can include, but are not limited to the following films:  X-Men (2000), A.I., Artificial Intelligence (2001), The Minority Report (2002), I, Robot (2004), Wall-E (2008), District 9  (2009), Inception (2010), Ex-Machina (2014), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), Harry Potter (2001-2011), and Black Panther (2018).

Gender Studies

The Gender Studies Section, formerly known as the Women Studies Section, issues an open call for papers and panel proposals that focus on gender and religion.

Health Sciences

#1 Call for Posters

The theme for CSC this year is “Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth, and Beauty” (CSC).  Last year, the Health Sciences Section of CSC hosted a poster session to highlight individual research, original thoughts and application of new pedagogical approaches and technology. The session included submissions related to basic, biomedical, clinical, and rehabilitation sciences. We are pleased to announce that we will continue the poster session with this call for poster presentations in the same arenas of research.

The authors responsible for each poster will be available to discuss their work and to provide additional information. The session will heighten interest in research occurring at a variety of institutions and promote professional growth and networking opportunities.

If you are interested in submitting your poster for consideration in this session, please e-mail your titles, author, and abstract (250 word max) to Toby Rogers (toby.rogers@lcu.edu) by February 14, 2019.  We aim to notify presenters of acceptance by February, 28, 1019. 

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

#2 Call for Papers

The theme for CSC this year is “Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth, and Beauty” (CSC). Last year, we invited submissions related to the theme of “Discovery in the Sciences” and had two sessions of presentations on research updates in the basic and biomedical sciences. We would like to renew this call for presentations and ask for submissions related to basic, biomedical, clinical, and rehabilitation sciences.

These presentations will take the form of research reports where presenters will have ~15-20 min (depending on the final number of presentations) to present semi-technical updates and information about ongoing research. The intended audience for these presentations should be scientists and healthcare professionals who may or may not share the same discipline as the presenter. Hopefully these sessions will provide an opportunity for networking and collaboration among Christian researchers in various fields of basic, biomedical, clinical, and rehabilitation sciences.

Submissions will be peer reviewed and session(s) will be assembled based upon research areas, if possible.

If you are interested in submitting your research update for consideration in this session, please e-mail your title, authors and abstract (250 word max) to Joe Deweese (joe.deweese@lipscomb.edu) by February 14, 2019. If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer for a particular discipline, please also let us know. We will notify presenters of acceptance by February, 28, 2019.

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Missional Theology and World Christianity

Call for Papers #1

Missiology between Theory and Praxis

Disciplinary, cultural, and ideological pressures have opened rifts between church and academy, between scholarship and application, between theology and practice—and even between mission work and missiology. This session welcomes submissions related to the nature, limits, and aims of missiology, particularly as they relate to clarifying the relationship between theory and praxis in Christian scholarship. Papers that offer historical clarifications, contemporary assessments, or constructive proposals regarding the theory/praxis divide in missiology are of special interest.

Authors should submit proposals (approx. 300 words) to Greg McKinzie (gemckinzie@gmail.com) by January 19, 2019. Authors will receive word about their proposals by February 13. The three best proposals will be chosen in consultation with peer reviewers. Papers presented in this section will be considered for publication in an upcoming issue of Missio Dei: A Journal of Missional Theology and Praxis.

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Call for Papers #2

Contemporary Missiology

This sessions welcomes submissions related to all aspects of the study of mission, such as missiological anthropology, missions theory and practices, history of missions, theology of mission, interfaith dialogue, and world Christianity.

Authors should submit proposals (approx. 300 words) to Chris Flanders (chris.flanders@acu.edu) by January 19, 2019. Authors will receive word about their proposals by February 13. The three best proposals will be chosen in consultation with peer reviewers. Papers presented in this section will be considered for publication in an upcoming issue of Missio Dei: A Journal of Missional Theology and Praxis.

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Patristics

Call for Papers #1

The Patristics section of the Christian Scholars' Conference (Lubbock, TX, June 5-7, 2019) issues an open call for papers pertaining to the field of Patristics. This open session will coincide with the sixth annual Everett Ferguson Lecture in Early Christian Studies, to be given by Brian Daley.

We welcome papers on all topics but particularly encourage papers that address conceptions of wisdom in patristic sources, in keeping with the overall CSC 2019 theme, “Pursuing Wisdom: Goodness, Truth, and Beauty.” However, other topics are also very welcome. 

Faculty members may submit proposals of 300-400 words describing the aim and scope of their papers. PhD students are invited to submit complete papers of approximately 10 pages, double-spaced. All proposals will be considered by a peer-review committee, which will organize two or more sessions, depending on the number and quality of proposals received.       

Please send proposals to Tera Harmon (teraharmon@gmail.com) no later than January 22, 2019. Paper proposals should include the title of the paper and a brief bio of the author, which will appear in the CSC program, if the paper is accepted.

Call for Papers #2

The Patristics section of the Christian Scholars' Conference (Lubbock, TX, June 5-7, 2019) issues an open call for papers pertaining to the field of Patristics. This open session will coincide with the sixth annual Everett Ferguson Lecture in Early Christian Studies, to be given by Brian Daley.

We welcome papers on any topic that engages patristic thought through the lens of broader theological questions in the history of Christian thought. In particular, we invite papers that develop a theme or idea from a patristic author to the present or that put a contemporary theologian in conversation with an ancient theologian. 

Faculty members may submit proposals of 300-400 words describing the aim and scope of their papers. PhD students are invited to submit complete papers of approximately 10 pages, double-spaced. All proposals will be considered by a peer-review committee, which will organize two or more sessions, depending on the number and quality of proposals received.       

Please send proposals to Tera Harmon (teraharmon@gmail.com) no later than January 22, 2019. Paper proposals should include the title of the paper and a brief bio of the author, which will appear in the CSC program, if the paper is accepted.

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Philosophy

“Bias, Character, and Testimony”

The 2019 Philosophy section seeks presentations relating to bias, character, and testimony. How does bias affect the ways that we interpret testimony or the credence we lend it? Is bias always negative, or are there useful and virtuous roles for bias among listeners? How does our evaluation of a speaker's character bias us in favor of or against the speaker's testimony? Can character be improved so as to correct for bias in interpreting testimony? How should we choose which testimony to hear, ignore, or undermine? Can character or bias help us overcome or navigate disagreements in testimony? And are answers to any of these questions different in an ecclesial context than they would be outside the church?

This session invites a wide variety of approaches to these questions. Arguments from philosophical, literary, pastoral, historical, and biblical studies perspectives are all welcome. Regardless of disciplinary approach, however, clarity is of paramount importance. Judges will choose two papers for this session with the aim of stimulating coherent and productive discussion.

Please submit an abstract of 300-500 words. The abstract should come prepared for blind review as an email attachment in docx or rtf format. The body of the email should include the following: (a) author's name, (b) university affiliation, (c) title of proposed presentation, (d) author email address. Presentations may range from 15 to 20 minutes in length. Submissions should be sent by e-mail to cashrock@gmail.com. The deadline for submissions is February 14, 2019. Notices of acceptance will be sent by February 28, 2019. All panelists must register with the conference in order to present their work. (http://www.lipscomb.edu/csc/Registration)

All participants must register with the conference in order to present their work.

Science

Call for Papers #1

Teaching and Learning with Technology

The Teaching and Learning with Technology section invites proposals for the 2019 conference. The overall conference theme of "Pursuing Wisdom" is especially appropriate for this section. The section co-chairs are planning one session dedicated to the pursuit of wisdom through information literacy (library resources and services) and a second "wild card" section with presentations from a variety of perspectives related to teaching, learning and technology.
