Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Bible and Emotion Consultation will host two sessions in 2014. One session will feature invited papers and respondents concerning Affect Theory and Biblical Interpretation. The second session is open. We invite proposals related to critical study of the Bible and Emotion across the full range of biblical literature. We are interested in papers that explore methodological questions and that examine divine and/or human emotions in a biblical text, set of texts, book, or genre.
