Warfare in Ancient Israel


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Warfare in Ancient Israel Section fosters the interdisciplinary study of war and its representations in the Hebrew Bible and ancient Near East. The Section is sponsoring two sessions at the 2013 Annual Meeting: (1) The FIRST is open, and the steering committee invites proposals for papers on all aspects of warfare and the formation of society in ancient Israel and the Near East. Presentations are limited to twenty minutes to promote discussion. (2) The SECOND session focuses on warfare scholarship at the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Susan Niditch's War in the Hebrew Bible. This session is closed and consists of invited papers that describe or advance the state and prospects of warfare research since Niditch, who will respond to papers. For additional information, contact Frank Ritchel Ames (fames@mac.com).
