Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? No

Call For Papers: Slavery, Resistance & Freedom will jointly sponsor three sessions in Boston in 2017. With Bible and Cultural Studies and Reading, Theory, and the Bible, two sessions will focus on the topic, “The Present and the Future of Biblical Studies” to mark and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the journal, Biblical Interpretation (Brill). Speakers/panelists for both sessions will be invited. Our third co-sponsored session will be an invited review panel examining Sandra Joshel and Lauren Hackworth Petersen’s *The Material Life of Roman Slaves,* which examines how one can use archaeological materials and ancient architectural spaces to reconstruct the everyday lives of enslaved persons in the Roman imperial period. Invited panelists will focus on the implications of Joshel and Hackworth’s methodologies for biblical studies, early Jewish and Christian histories, and histories of enslaved resistance.
