Economics in the Biblical World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The "Economics in the Biblical World" program unit is planning three sessions for the 2016 meeting. The first is a joint session with the Wisdom and Apocalypticism section. This will be an invited session on sapiential and apocalyptic texts in relation to the theme of economics, entitled “Economic Instruction and Poverty in Wisdom and Apocalypticism.” The second will be an invited session on theoretical approaches to the study of ancient economies and the state of the field in this area. The third, "open" session will be focused on labor and labor relations. We welcome proposals for presentations on the various forms of labor in the ancient world, particularly as addressed in biblical texts. Proposals should be fairly precise about textual focus, approach, and anticipated conclusions.
