Requirements for Participation

Deuteronomistic History

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This unit discusses the hypothesis of a Deuteronomistic History, first advanced by Martin Noth and further modified by later scholars, and deals with the pre-canonical stages in the composition of Deuteronomy and the Former Prophets. A special interest is given to the question of compositional techniques and to the historical setting of the supposed deuteronomistic milieu. Papers proposed for this section should interact in some fashion with the idea of a “Deuteronomistic” history work, whether the concept is affirmed, rethought or rejected. Representatives from the international academy are especially encouraged to participate.
