Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The consultation solicits papers centered on the theme of Levitical and Priestly lineages and genealogies. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: the textual contours of the genealogical notices themselves; the social and material conditions that the genealogies presuppose; and the genealogies’ rhetorical and ideological usage throughout biblical and extra-biblical sources. In addition, the consultation will run one open session, in which proposals on all topics pertaining to Levites and Priests are welcome.
