Call for Papers: Jesus Traditions and Masculinities in World Christianity

Together with my colleague Peter-Ben Smit I am currently preparing a special issue of the academic journal Exchange on the theme ‘Jesus Christ and the Construction of Masculinities in Contemporary World Christianity’.
We are inviting authors who conduct original and cutting-edge research on men and masculinities in the multiple and changing contexts of contemporary world Christianity.
The papers we are looking for should particularly investigate the function of Jesus-traditions (i.e. texts, both canonical and non-canonical, images, symbols and doctrines about Jesus Christ) in the construction and/or transformation of masculinities vis-à-vis specific social, cultural and political issues in local contexts of world Christianity.
One-page proposals for articles should be submitted before 15 June, 2011, to the guest editors. For further information, please see the call for papers.
