Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The call for papers for 2013 has the theme 'The Reception of Biblical Violence'. (1) We welcome proposals for a joint session with the Metacriticism of Biblical Scholarship Consultation, which will assess how scholarship has addressed biblical passages urging mass violence toward targeted groups, including scholars' use or avoidance of the term 'genocide.' (2) For our own open session(s) we would extend this more broadly to papers that focus on the reception of biblical violence in in contexts other than a narrow critical-academic one (e.g. politics, law, ethics, popular religion, the arts): we would particularly value studies of the ways that texts of violence have influenced and affected a particular group, or generated intellectual trends at a particular point in history.
