CALLS FOR SUBMISSIONS

SPECIAL ISSUE

Catholic Leadership Beyond the Abuse Crisis
Volume 2, Number 2 (Fall 2019)
Guest Editor: Teresa Pitt Green

The Editors of Praxis are seeking submissions for the 2019 thematic issue on the topic of “Catholic Leadership Beyond the Abuse Crisis.” We welcome essays from practitioners, scholars and survivors with experience and expertise on this topic.

This issue will publish articles written from a faith perspective which engage in critical and constructive examinations of justice concerns related to clerical sexual abuse, ecclesial oversight, and adjacent issues. Essays that pay close attention to particular practices, initiatives, or policies affecting abuse survivors, clergy, and faith communities are especially welcome.

Some authors may choose to feature the following in their essays:

  • Textured profile of a compelling program promoting justice involving a community dealing with abuse at the local level, including interviews with participants and leaders.
  • Biographical examination of a person or persons who demonstrated an outstanding commitment to social justice in relation to power structures and leadership within the Catholic Church.
  • Ethnographic studies of a community struggling with questions about the protection of children, with discussion of how religious teachings or faith commitments illuminate or are illuminated by this struggle.
  • Any approach that examines practices, organizations, or individuals as they offer insights into faith-based responses to the challenges and opportunities posed by changing perspectives on leadership in the Church.

Manuscripts can have two formats: short reflections on personal experience in the range of 1,500 to 5,000 words, which will be reviewed and edited internally to fit the journal's publication guidelines for quality and mission fit, and peer-reviewed scholarly articles in the range of 5,000 to 15,000 words.

Please specify to which section you are submitting when you submit your article.

If you would like to discuss whether your topic or approach is suitable for submission, please contact Ray Ward, Managing Editor at [email protected]. Manuscripts should be submitted to the Managing Editor directly.

This issue will publish articles written from a faith perspective which engage in critical and constructive examinations of justice concerns related to the interplay of politics and religion in the current American context.

  • Ethnographic studies of a community struggling with questions about political divisions, with discussion of how religious teachings or faith commitments illuminate or are illuminated by this struggle
  • Any approach that examines practices, organizations, or individuals as they offer insights into faith-based responses to the challenges and opportunities posed by changing perspectives on faith and politics.

Manuscripts can have two formats: short reflections on personal experience in the range of 1,500 to 5,000 words, which will be reviewed and edited internally to fit the journal's publication guidelines for quality and mission fit, and peer-reviewed scholarly articles in the range of 5,000 to 15,000 words.
