Meals in the HB/OT and Its World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The section Meals in the HB/OT and its World will host two sessions in 2017. One session will feature questions related to philological terms for food and drink under the topic “Strange Foods or Just Weird Words? Food and Philology in the HB/OT.” We especially welcome papers that combine insights from philology, cultural anthropology and biology. The second session on “Gluttony, Intoxication, and Feasting” focuses on food and beverages consumed within special contexts (ritual, feast, life-cycles etc.) that influences physiological or psychological processes. We especially welcome investigations that engage with material culture or interpretations of specific biblical and comparative ancient texts. Papers for both sessions are to be twenty minutes in length with ten minutes of discussion afterwards.
