Requirements for Participation

Metaphor Theory and the Hebrew Bible


Program Unit Type: Consultation
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The consultation on "Metaphor Theory and Biblical Texts" is planning two sessions for the meeting in Chicago. Both sessions will be comprised of open and invited papers. One session will explore current metaphor theories and their applicability to biblical studies. Our focus will be whether particular theories of metaphor are mutually exclusive or mutually enhancing. The second session will focus on the interplay of metaphors within Psalm 18. The papers should offer a close reading of the text, with particular attention to the relationship between metaphors in this psalm; authors should integrate general metaphor theory into their exploration of this topic.
