Pacifica Themed Issue on Bonhoeffer: Invitation to Contribute

This is a shot in the dark, but perhaps one that might meet with a welcome response from Bonhoeffer scholars, whether based in Australasia or beyond.

I am hoping to produce an issue of the journal Pacifica later this year celebrating the legacy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the light of the recent completion of the DBWE project. 5 articles are currently commissioned, but I am looking for a sixth article that we might include in the proposal to go the journal's editorial board. I am looking for someone who is on Faculty (i.e. with their PhD and in an academic role) who might be able to contribute a 6,000 word article on an aspect of Bonhoeffer's thought, with special concern for Bonhoeffer's relevance for contemporary Christian thought and practice. The piece would need to be a fully critical research article, from someone with a track record in Bonhoeffer research. The articles already secured cover the following topics: Bonhoeffer and Spiriituality; Bonhoeffer and Theological Hermeneutics; Bonhoeffer and State Power; Bonhoeffer and Reading the Signs of the Times and Bonhoeffer's legacy in the light of the DBWE project. The sixth article should not overlap with these themes.

The deadline for final copy would be the end of April 2012 (the reason for the short notice is that other prospective contributors no longer feel able to meet that deadline).

If this is something that interests you then please send me an email with a proposal for your article, along with a brief academic CV, by 31st January 2012. I will only be able to select one proposal, but will contact everyone who sends one in with an indication of my decision. Emails can be sent to the address at the top of my staff page.

Please feel free to share this invitation with others on your own blog or by other means.
