Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Bible and Visual Art section plans to host the following sessions in 2018: (1) We invite papers for a joint session with the Exile (Forced Migrations) in Biblical Literature program unit on the theme of ‘Exile in Biblical Art’. (2) We would also welcome papers for a themed session on ‘Gender and Biblical Art’. (3) Finally, for an open session, we invite proposals that fall within our broad purpose: to explore historical, hermeneutical, theological, iconographic and/or theoretical aspects related to the interpretation of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures in visual art through the centuries. We particularly encourage topics that relate to art, sculpture or other forms of biblical art in public spaces in Denver, Colorado.
