Announcement of 2015 Theme Issue and Call for Papers: The Nuclear Age at 70: New Global Issues and Enduring Concerns
The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki changed human history in decisive ways, initiating the nuclear age in 1945. The legacy of those events is still felt and contested today. Furthermore, the current and future status of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons continues to generate controversy. How do Christians engage the ongoing effects of the atomic bombings, concerns over nuclear energy and nuclear proliferation, or efforts to abolish nuclear weapons? What type of cultural reflection or artistic creation emerges in response to nuclear events? How are societies or human beings affected? Seventy years later, what can Christian academic reflection add to discussions of the nuclear age? We believe the time is ripe to explore these questions.
As a result, proposed manuscripts that address one or more of the following themes (but not limited to these) would be welcome:
Submitted manuscripts should engage such questions in a manner aligned with the mission of Christian Scholar’s Review, and address matters of concern to a Christian academic community.
This special theme issue will be guest edited by Richard Pointer (Westmont College, firstname.lastname@example.org), Michael Van Dyke (Cornerstone University, email@example.com), Scott Waalkes (Malone University, firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mark Yuly (Houghton College, Mark.Yuly@houghton.edu). If you have questions about the appropriateness of manuscript topics, please contact any of the guest editors via e-mail.
Final manuscripts should be submitted via email to the lead guest editor at email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2014.
