Call For Papers: The Midrash Section will sponsor one session that will be open to paper proposals that address any area of critical Midrash research. The Section will co-sponsor a second session in conjunction with the African American Biblical Hermeneutics Section in the form of an invited panel discussion. This session will be devoted to a critical discussion of the subject of Race in Rabbinic Literature, with a particular focus on Charles Copher's chapter ("The Black Presence in the Old Testament") in the seminal work "Stony the Road We Trod: African American Biblical Hermeneutics," edited by Cain Hope Felder.
