Requirements for Participation

Economics in the Biblical World

Program Unit Type: Consultation
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This program unit will have two sessions at the 2012 meeting. The first will take up the issue of "class" and whether this is an appropriate term for analysis of economic practices in the ancient world. Proposals are welcome from a variety of periods and perspectives, as long as the paper addresses this theme of class. The second session will continue our discussion from one of the 2011 panels on the issue of domestic space/family life. Papers that address this topic within the framework of economics are welcome. While both of these sessions will include invited papers, we welcome proposals on either theme.
