Call For Papers:

The Computer Assisted Research Section will have two thematic sections.

The first thematic session is, "Fifty Years of Digital Biblical Studies." Since the late 1950s, biblical scholars have sought to leverage their study of the ancient world with computers. In the half-century since, they have solved many problems -- and created others. This session invites presentations on any aspect of that history, commentary on current research and methodology or future prospects for digital biblical studies. Especially welcome are proposals from those who were participants in or eye-witnesses to the events of those years. Qualified presentations will be invited to be included in a volume of the proceedings to be published in Gorgias Press’s Bible in Technology Series.

The second thematic section is, "The Bible Software Shootout 2: Revenge of the Teachers." Software vendors are invited to showcase their products to demonstrate how their software is used by real teachers in the classroom, in course preparation, and in assignments. This can be for original language classes or in the instruction of English Bible. Qualified presentations will be invited to be included in a volume of the proceedings to be published in Gorgias Press’s Bible in Technology Series.

Proposals are also welcome in our twin areas of interest: computer assisted research and pedagogy.
