Theological Perspectives on the Book of Ezekiel

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This section seeks to bring together scholars working on the book of Ezekiel to share research and conclusions about the book. The section encourages an expressly theological approach to the book. At the 2011 Annual Meeting in San Francisco we will hold three sessions:

(1) a closed session on “The God Ezekiel Creates” (the second of the three years of the project);

(2) an open session; and

(3) a joint session with the Biblical Poetry Section on “Ezekiel’s Rhetoric and Poetry.”

We invite paper proposals for the open session on any aspect of the book of Ezekiel. For “Ezekiel’s Rhetoric and Poetry” we welcome papers that explore the role poetry plays in Ezekiel’s rhetoric, e.g., papers that raise questions related to the contrast and/or relationship between Ezekiel’s poetry and prose, rhetorical functions of the poetry throughout the book or in particular sections, topics dealt with only or mostly in Ezekiel’s poetry and not in his prose, etc. All papers will be required in electronic form for circulation one month before the Annual Meeting.
