Requirements for Participation

Writing/Reading Jeremiah


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In concordance with the name of the Writing/Reading Jeremiah group, the 2017 sessions will focus on aspects of writing in the Book of Jeremiah such as: How is the act of writing configuring and configured in the scrolls? Does writing shape a specific theological meaning? What is the connection between writing and re-writing in the book of Jeremiah and beyond? How do modes of writing influence modes of reading – and vice versa? Was Roland Barthes correct when he declared the death of the writer and the birth of the reader? The group will host two sessions: 1) a panel discussion of Nathan Mastnjak, Deuteronomy and the Emergence of Textual Authority in Jeremiah, (FAT 2. Reihe 87), Mohr-Seibeck 2016 (invited), and 2) an open session.
