Emotions and the Biblical World (EABS)

Program Unit Type: Group
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2014 joint EABS and SBL meeting in Vienna the Emotions and the Biblical World we invite paper proposals for two sessions:

(1) The first session will be co-sponsored with the ISBL Biblical Masculinities unit. In 2014 the focus of this consultation will be on God’s masculinity, and thus we welcome proposals which explore the connection between God’s emotions and maleness. This includes the question as to what extent God's emotions are explicitly gendered, i.e. whether there is a connection made between God's masculinity and emotions, or whether this remains mostly implicit. The corpora of writings to be considered from this perspective, in addition to the HB, LXX, and the NT, may include other Early Jewish and Early Christian literature.

(2) The second session will be devoted to exploring the role of emotions and their conceptualisation in Early Judaism. For this panel we already have several invited papers, but we will also consider additional paper proposals. We especially encourage papers which include discussion of methodological issues, as well as those which are not focused exclusively on literary texts, but which make use also of other types of evidence, such as inscriptions and papyri.
