Call For Papers: For SBL Boston, 2017, the Megilloth group will be hosting 3 sessions, the primary theme of which is Reception and Reception history. One session will be a panel discussion on the book of Esther, hosting authors of recent volumes on the book of Esther in which an outline of their research is followed by an open discussion. Two more sessions will be organized around the topic of reception. One will be given over specifically to the book of Ecclesiastes and its reception. The second will be an open session and which invites any paper that deals with the reception of any book within the Megilloth. Priority will be given to papers that also situate their reading of a text within the broader framework of the Megilloth.
