Requirements for Participation

Children in the Biblical World

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Children in the Biblical World will host three sessions in 2014. Our open session invites proposals approaching the topic of children in the Biblical World from both disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. Our second session will be a joint session with the AAR Childhood Studies and Religion on the topic Children and Sacrifice. Proposals approaching the topic from a variety of perspectives and methodologies are welcome. The third session will be a joint session with the Gender, Sexuality and Bible section. We encourage interdisciplinary and theoretically foregrounded papers that explore the ways the constructions of childhood, gender, and sexuality are interrelated, in the biblical world, the biblical texts, or in their various afterlives and influences.
