Healthcare and Disability in the Ancient World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Unit plans to have at least two sessions at the 2013 meeting. One of these will be an invited session focused on the topic of the categorization of disabilities in the Bible and its surrounding cultures, with special attention given to the categories of blindness, deafness and muteness. The other session(s) will be open, and paper proposals are welcome on any aspect of the study of health and disability related to the Bible. Paper proposals that attend to the same issues as the invited session - categorization, blindness, deafness, and muteness - are encouraged, though any proposals relevant to the general topic of the Unit are welcome.
