Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: One session will include papers analyzing the depiction of biblical themes or narratives in art in Boston museums. One session, co-sponsored with the Midrash Section, will accept proposals focusing upon midrash and visual art. Presenters may analyze the presence of visual art in midrashic literature (e.g., mosaics, statues, representations) or discuss midrashic approaches and mediated parallels to biblical art. One session will remain open for any papers that fit the description of the Bible and Visual Art Section: to explore historical, hermeneutical, theological, iconographic, and/or theoretical aspects related to the interpretation of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures in visual art through the centuries.
