1) Open Call for Papers:

For SBL 2011, the Philo of Alexandria Group invites proposals for papers for one open panel session on any aspect of the study of Philo of Alexandria. We encourage proposals from graduate students and early career scholars as well as established scholars.

2) Invited Panels:

Another panel, consisting of invited speakers, will be devoted to a commentary in progress on Philo's De Confusione Linguarum (On the Confusion of Tongues). In addition, along with the Hellenistic Judaism Section and the Hellenistic Moral Philosophy and Early Christianity Section, the Philo Group is co-sponsoring a panel of invited speakers to respond to Maren Niehoff's forthcoming book, Jewish Exegesis and Homeric Scholarship in Alexandria (Cambridge University Press, 2011).
