The team of the Canadian Journal of Theology, Mental Health and Disability is excited to announce our first Call for Submissions. The editors are Amy Panton and Miriam Spies, doctoral students at Emmanuel College. The journal is proud to have a partnership with The Canadian Disability and Theology Symposium.
We are pleased to announce the start of the "Canadian Journal of Mental Health, Theology, and Disability", a journal committed to breaking new ground at the intersection of theology and mental health, exploring disability using an interfaith theological lens. Our priorities include publishing work by people with lived experience of mental illness and other disabilities, especially student work. We want to create a space where we can ask questions that are important for people of faith who are living with mental illness and disabilities, while honouring those who have come before us while listening to new voices in the field. Publishing peer-reviewed papers as well as creative work such as poetry, life-writing, visual art etc, the journal aims to expand and add to the current theological conversation on mental health and disability. We welcome submissions from all faith traditions.
The deadline for submissions for the first issue is October 31, 2020. Once submitted, academic papers will be peer-reviewed. We anticipate our first edition will be released Spring 2021 in a fully online, open-access format. For more information visit http://ow.ly/nKHx50AKuPI
