Call of Papers for a topical issue of Open Theology
Open Theology” (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue “Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Theology”.
The topic comprises all topics related to the digitization of biblical and theological studies, from theoretical or epistemological thoughts to the presentation of digital projects. For this special issue, we encourage contributions that consider the history of biblical studies or systematic theology, and explain that ways in which the transition to the digital media will (or will not) affect the definition and the practices of these disciplines. We also encourage systematic contributions that deal with new digital challenges such as serendipity vs teleology, or intent of the users vs intentio auctoris or operis, or artificial intelligence vs divine providence. Finally, we encourage contributions that focus on Bible and digital media, particularly digital storytelling and multimedia biblical narratives.
