Call for essays for an edited volume on the Church of England / Anglican Church in the Caribbean

31 Jul 2023 10:36 AM | HSEC Director of Operations (Administrator)

The proposed volume will consist of a series of essays, each by an individual scholar or a small (not more than three) number of co-authors, focusing on a particular geographic region or island / country.

While each essay will have its own focus, the volume as a whole will need to approach Anglican Studies as an interdisciplinary field, including Anglican history, theology, liturgy, preaching, postcolonial studies, ecclesiology, spirituality, literature, missiology, ethics/moral theology, ministry, pastoral care, ecumenism, and interreligious studies. Not all of these areas need be considered in a single essay. Rather, authors are encouraged to select particular aspects of the whole that best suit the specific focus of their proposal. But in all cases some consideration must be given to the history of the Church of England / Anglican Church in the locale under discussion, whether as a distinct section or as a framing device. Essays that also consider the current position of that locale’s Anglican Church within a broader contemporary framework are most welcome.

The editor is interested in essays that consider Barbados and Jamaica, specifically, each as a single subject. Other essays might consider individual islands or groupings.

Essays on the Church of England / Anglican Church in the Spanish, French, and Dutch Caribbean are also welcome.

Please submit proposals of no more than 500 words and, if possible, provide a tentative title and a two- to three-sentence summary of the proposed work. The title and summary need not be part of the 500-word count. A target word count for the finished essay would also be appreciated.

Graduate students and recent graduates are particularly encouraged to submit a proposal. Authors working in, or with strong ties to, the place of their topic are also encouraged and should make note of their connections in the email accompanying the submission.

If a proposal can be developed for the interested publisher, style guides, deadlines, etc. will be disseminated at that stage.

Please submit a proposal to Chris Fauske via Plain text or a Word attachment / link are both acceptable.

The deadline for submission of a proposal is 30 November 2023.

If you know someone who might be interested in this project, please share this CFP with them.
