Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics Section invites members to present a paper that utilizes linguistics to study the biblical text, and to submit their proposal through the online system before the call deadline, which is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Proposals should consist of a 1-2 page description of the paper. In addition, proposers (both full and student members) who have not previously presented at this section of the Annual Meeting must submit the full paper they wish to read to the program unit co-chairs before March 5. Please note that unless otherwise indicated, papers must be of such a length that they can be presented within 25 minutes, so as to allow for 5 minutes of response and discussion after each paper’s presentation. Our theme session, "Persuasion," will explore Appraisal Theory, and is by invitation only; however, any other papers that further contribute to that discussion may be of interest for the open session, and will be given consideration along with paper proposals on other topics.
