Requirements for Participation

Ancient Near Eastern Iconography and the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Ancient Near Eastern Iconography and the Bible Section invites papers for two or perhaps three sessions, at least one of which will be open to any submissions within the general parameters of the section, which deals with all aspects of ancient Near Eastern iconography and the Hebrew Bible (including, for example, comparative methodology, the shift from LBA to IA considered iconographically, literary and artistic images, etc.). For a more focused section(s), we are particularly interested in papers dealing with the question(s) of aniconism—especially as that idea is found in the Hebrew Bible vis-à-vis the rich iconographical record of the ancient Near East.
