Call For Papers: For the SBL Annual Meeting in 2011, the Hellenistic Judaism Section invites proposals for papers on

[1] "Jews of Italy," considering material and/or documentary evidence from the Hellenistic period to Late Antiquity, with a focus on new finds and perspectives, and

[2]"From Hellenistic Judaism to Byzantine Jewry," including but not limited to Italy, considering trajectories of continuity and/or points of parallel among Greek-speaking Jews, Jewish literature in Greek, etc., from antiquity into the Byzantine Empire.

In addition, the Hellenistic Judaism Section will be organizing an invited panel on "Recent Books on Hellenistic Judaism," and co-sponsoring a session with the Philo of Alexandria and Hellenistic Moral Philosophy and Early Christianity groups on Maren Niehoff's Jewish Exegesis and Homeric Scholarship in Alexandria (Cambridge UP 2011).

In light of recent policy changes, we encourage students interested in submitting a proposal to contact the Program Unit Chairs in advance of the deadline.
