The inaugural issue of JIBS (to be published Summer 2019) announces an open call for submissions on any aspect pertaining to interdisciplinary biblical studies. We are especially interested in submissions that embody interdisciplinary, social justice-oriented, feminist, queer, and innovative biblical scholarship. We welcome submissions that challenge canonical and/or disciplinary norms and boundaries or that query the field of biblical studies’ relationship to the broader investigation of human religion, culture, and literature.

To be considered for this issue, full articles should be submitted by 31 March 2019. Please see Submission Guidelines for more information.

Please email submissions along with 200 word abstract to
