Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Nag Hammadi and Gnosticism Section will hold three sessions at the Annual Meeting in San Diego. There is an open call for the first session for papers on any topic related to the interests of the Section. Advanced graduate students and women scholars are especially invited to submit abstracts for consideration. The second session will address the topic of ancient exegesis of Genesis 1-3; although this session will feature invited speakers, scholars (junior scholars in particular) are invited to submit abstract proposals to be included in the session. A third session, co-sponsored with the Inventing Christianity: Apostolic Fathers, Apologists, and Martyrs Section, invites paper proposals that consider the work and academic impact of Prof. Karen L. King.
