Call for Papers

Academics Ð The Cord Ð Scott Gibson Ð Faculty Ð Truett Ð 05/07/2018Each year the Evangelical Homiletics Society hosts its Annual International Scholars Conference. A key feature of the conference are the papers that members prepare and then present to their peers. This is the heartbeat of our scholarly society as members gather to engage with the ideas presented in the papers. There we’re able to encourage, query, and critique each other’s scholarship. Professors of preaching and other scholars lay out their ideas that have an impact on the classroom and their potential publications.

This is a call for papers for the upcoming conference that’ll take place 4-6 November 2021 at the George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University, Waco, Texas. The theme for our gathering is “Preaching Hope and Lament.” Your paper proposal may focus on the conference theme or another area of homiletical research. All proposals are evaluated by a blind jury of EHS members for possible presentation at the conference. CLICK HERE to download the paper proposal information.

Please note: authors of papers selected for presentation at the Annual International Scholars Conference will also be required to provide a five-minute introductory/overview video that’ll be posted on the website with the completed paper prior to the conference. More details on the content of the video will be provided once selections have been made.

To propose a paper at the Annual International Scholars Conference, please complete this form and submit it to Vice-President Scott M. Gibson at by May 30, 2021. You will be notified by June 30, 2021 if your paper has been selected for presentation. If the proposal is selected, you will need to submit the completed paper and video by September 7, 2021. Before submitting your proposal, please make sure your EHS membership is current.
