Joshua-Judges


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Three sessions: (1) Open Session on Building Data for the Study of Joshua-Judges. Paper proposals that deal with a specific text or texts within Joshua-Judges are welcome; (2) Open Session. This session seeks papers that deal with Joshua-Judges but are not focused on a particular passage. We welcome proposals for papers that will utilize diverse methodological techniques and/or synthetic approaches for the study of Joshua-Judges, or that will seek to place these books in a particular methodological landscape; (3) A joint-session between the Postcolonial Studies and Biblical Studies section and the Joshua-Judges section will examine Joshua-Judges through the lens of postcolonial theory, broadly conceived. The session is open to papers that explore (a) the ancient imperial/colonial context of these books, with possible reference to the question of nationhood and law, or (b) the use of Joshua-Judges within the modern colonial enterprise. Papers should include engagement with specific texts from the books themselves.
