Call For Papers: The Unit plans to have three sessions at the 2008 meeting. The FIRST SESSION will be an open session for which submissions exploring biblical theology (broadly defined) as it relates to disability, healthcare, and the body are encouraged. This session will be co-sponsored with the Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures section. The SECOND SESSION will be an open session for which all submissions on disability, illness, medicine, and healthcare and biblical studies or cognate literature are welcome. All methods are invited. The THIRD SESSION will be a discussion by invited panelists of Saul Olyan's Disability in the Hebrew Bible published by Cambridge University Press. Inquiries about the sessions should be addressed to either R. Magdalene (rachelmagdalene@augustana.edu) or J. Schipper (schipper@temple.edu).
