The Alexandria School Journal

Agora University publishes the Alexandria School Journal, an Orthodox Christian Academic Journal once a year in the Fall. Articles submitted to the Journal must adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style.

Call for Papers: ASJ 2020

Scholars, theologians, and students are invited to submit paper proposals for volume 7 of the Alexandria School Journal. The Journal seeks to engage with articles that address topics from an Orthodox perspective in all its aspects whether spiritual, biblical, liturgical, historical, linguistic, patristic, dogmatic, and practical. The theme for this edition is “Lessons from 2020.” It is clear that 2020 is a particularly challenging year: the Coronavirus global pandemic and the brutal murder of George Floyd bookended the spring season, a season symbolizing new life and resurrection. The contrast proves stark. Paper proposals that approach the contemporary challenges are welcome. These challenges include, but are not limited to, political fragmentation and church unity, race and ethnicity, and abuse.

Abstracts of no more than 200 words are to before August 15th, 2020. Invitations to submit full-length manuscripts will be sent before August 25th, 2020. Full manuscripts, approximately 3500-5000 words in length and adhering to the Chicago manual of style, must be submitted by November 25th, 2020. Volume 7 of the Alexandria School Journal will be published in December 2020.
