Requirements for Participation

Exile (Forced Migrations) in Biblical Literature

Program Unit Type: Seminar
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For November 2014, we welcome proposals on the topic of gender and the conceptualization of exile. This panel will focus on the methodological possibilities and drawbacks connected to investigating women and exile. For example, how should gender be conceptualized? What are the most suitable ways to extrapolate ideas about gender and exile from the Biblical material and from other sources? What definitions should we be working with during the discussion of women and exile? Papers that consider the depiction of women in the exilic and early post-exilic period on a more general level are also welcome. We will have one panel of invited papers and one panel from an open call.
