ATS Call for Papers
2023 Annual Meetings—San Antonio, TX
Theme: Theological Anthropology


The Adventist Theological Society invites proposals for its annual meetings to be held in San Antonio, TX, on Tuesday through Thursday (Nov 1416, 2023), and Sabbath (Nov 18, 2023). In conjunction with the Evangelical Theological Society, this year’s conference theme is Theological Anthropology, although excellent papers on other topics will be accepted as well.

The topic for this year allows a wide range of reflections in different disciplines on the nature of human beings and how this affects our relationship with God and one another.

For many international scholars it is very difficult to obtain visas and come to the meetings in person. Yet we value the contributions and voices of friends and colleagues. As we have done in the past, we intend to have a breakout session of virtual presentations alongside in-person presentations. Proposals can be submitted for either virtual or in-person modality.
Submission Guidelines:
 Proposals must be in Microsoft Word format and include an abstract (200-300 words) summarizing the main thesis and trajectory of argumentation. 
 Include in the proposal the paper title, the author’s full name, institution, mailing address, and email address.
 First time presenters must also submit a complete outline of their paper for review when they submit their proposal.
 The Adventist Theological Society affirms a high view of Scripture. Proposals should reflect this perspective.
 Submission of a proposal does not guarantee acceptance.
 Indicate whether you plan to attend in-person or wish to contribute in virtual modality. 

Send proposals to:  Eike Mueller, ThD, ATS President-Elect, at: eike.a.mueller@gmail.com

Proposal Deadline: Sunday, April 9, 2023.
If your paper is accepted, we will send you more information regarding scheduling and location when these details are settled. ATS does not have funds to assist presenters with travel expenses.

It is our intention to communicate regarding inclusion of your paper in the ATS by June 2023. If you have questions, please email [email protected].
