The newest special issue of the Journal for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies (JIBS Volume 2/1) is out today! This one has the title Activism in the Biblical Studies Classroom: Global Perspectives and is guest-edited by Shiloh co-director Johanna Stiebert.
This is the second volume guest-edited by a Shiloh co-director: Volume 1/2 with the title The Bible: Transgender and Genderqueer Perspectives is edited by Caroline Blyth (see here). And a forthcoming issue on Queer Theory and the Bible will be guest-edited by Chris Greenough (see here).
Activism is close to the heart of The Shiloh Project and – unsurprisingly! – many scholar activists known to followers of our blog are contributors to the volume.
The special edition contains articles on a range of activist causes and methods. Contributions are by: Chris Greenough, Musa Dube, Rhiannon Graybill, David Tombs, Meredith Warren, Eric Vanden Eykel and Sarah Rollens, Tina Shepardson, Zanne Domoney-Lyttle and Sarah Nicholson, Deborah Kahn-Harris and Robyn Ashworth-Steen, Gerald West and Sithembiso Zwane, and Jayme Reaves.
Please take a look, have a read, pass on the word, and act.
