Warfare in Ancient Israel

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Warfare in Ancient Israel Section will sponsor two sessions in 2011: 1) The FIRST session will be an open session for which we especially encourage proposals for 25-minute papers that explore symbols related to war and violence in their various ancient contexts. The symbols may relate to the realities/practices of warfare or its representations in texts and iconography. Examples include symbolic combat actions, costuming/outfitting elements, hair, artwork, literary symbols, and material artifacts and their use. 2) The SECOND session will consist of invited papers dealing with ritual and featuring a panel discussion.
