Call For Papers: The Sacrifice, Cult, and Atonement section offers two sessions for 2011: First, it invites papers for a joint open session with the Israelite Religion in its West Asian Environment section. Titled “Ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean Expulsion and Purgation Rituals,” this session will feature four papers followed by a five-minute discussion each. A general discussion panel concludes the session. Second, a triple joint session with the Space, Place, and Lived Experience in Antiquity section and the Hebrews section is titled “Simultaneous Cults: The Intersection of Sacred Space, Time, and Practice.” This session will feature papers by invited speakers with subsequent responses and ample time for discussion.
