The Section particularly invites papers for the 2011 Annual Meeting related to the current staus of research on the Shape and Shaping of the Psalter. Gerald Wilson's volume on the editing of the Hebrew Psalter was published in 1985 and the Book of Psalms Group held its first sessions in 1989. The program will allow a retrospective view.
