Requirements for Participation


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Pentateuch section is accepting proposals for one or two open sessions at the 2018 meeting. We encourage proposals focused on textual composition and transmission, and on the intersection of historical-critical and literary or sociological methods. For the 2018 meeting, we are particularly interested in papers that address (a) issues relating to place and geography, especially mountains; and (b) papers that focus on the questions of what constitutes a sign of diachronic development, how we know, and what effect (if any) the fractures have on interpretive possibilities. All proposals should demonstrate an engagement with the larger scholarly discussion.
