Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Two sessions are planned for the 2014 annual meeting. One session will be devoted to papers related to the Brill Josephus project and is by invitation only. For the second session the Josephus group invites proposals for papers on Josephus and his geographies. We are particularly interested in papers that explore Josephus’ ways of conceiving space (i.e., how he describes space as it was/is), perceiving space (i.e., space as he imagined or constructed it, e.g. sacred space), and handling lived space (i.e., dealing with space as the locus of structured individual or collective experience and agency).
