Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In 2014, Women in the Biblical World sponsor two invited panels and two open sessions. 1) An invited panel co-sponsored by a number of SBL and AAR sections celebrating the 25th Anniversary of White Women's Christ, Black Women's Jesus by J. Grant. 2) An invited panel addressing the interpretation of Revelation in the series Sleepy Hollow. 3) Co-sponsored with the Feminist Hermeneutics Section, we invite papers responding from a variety of perspectives to the challenge, delivered by Carol Meyers in her 2013 presidential address, to the use of the word “patriarchy” to describe ancient Israel. (Papers extending this challenge to the NT period are welcome.) 4) Open session.
