Families and Children in the Ancient World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Families and Children in the Ancient World section plans to host two sessions. The first will be an open session. We encourage paper proposals on a broad range of topics relating to families and children in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Testament, early Christianity, or the Greco-Roman world in general. Submissions from a variety of perspectives, such as gender, medicine, archaeology, and literature, are welcomed. The second session calls for papers on children sacrifices liturgically or metaphorically in various material or non-material ancient cultures.
