As guest editors of a special issue of the academic journal Exchange, we are issuing a call for papers on the theme of '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 by email (a.s.vanklinken@uu.nl; p.b.a.smit@vu.nl).

Please see the call for papers: http://vkc.library.uu.nl/vkc/integon/Lists/Announcements/Attachments/17/...
