Families and Children in the Ancient World

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For this meeting we plan two sessions.

  • The first will be a session on the topic of children’s bibles and will include both invited papers and an open call. The session will explore the contextual concerns of children’s bibles. Are, for example, Scandinavian children’s bibles different from American? Or African from Asian? If so, how do they differ and why? Papers on these and similar questions are encouraged.
  • The second will be an open session. We encourage paper proposals on a broad range of topics relating to children and families in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Testament, early Christianity, or the Greco-Roman world in general. Submissions from a variety of perspectives, such as gender, medicine, archaeology and literature, are welcome.
