Requirements for Participation

Ancient Fiction and Early Christian and Jewish Narrative


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Ancient Fiction and Early Christian and Jewish Narrative Section invites submissions for two sessions in 2012. For the first, we issue an open call for papers relevant to any aspect of our section's work, though with particular interest in proposals engaging the broad theme of "Borders, Boundaries, and Crossings." The second session will combine invited presentations with open submissions, on the topic "Teaching (with) the Ancient Novel: why, how, to whom, to what ends?" We envision that most presenters will discuss teaching a specific novelistic text from a particular angle -- that is, "Teaching X (topic/theme/approach/critical method) with or in Y (novelistic text).” We also welcome pedagogical proposals that take other distinctive approaches.
