Metaphor Theory and the Hebrew Bible


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We are planning two sessions for the meeting in San Antonio. Our first session is a review session of Joseph Lam’s new book: Patterns of Sin in the Hebrew Bible: Metaphor, Culture, and the Making of a Religious Concept. Oxford University Press (2016). This session will consist of invited papers and a response by Joseph Lam. Our second session has an open call for papers on a theme of your choice within the field of metaphor theory and Bible. All proposals for our sessions should state the author's main thesis, the methodological approach followed, and the specific examples studied. All papers must incorporate current metaphor theory and engage the Hebrew text.
