Call For Papers: For the 2019 Annual Meeting in San Diego, the Pauline Epistles Section is planning two invited sessions and two open-call sessions. The first invited session, co-sponsored with the Historical Paul Consultation, will be a panel discussion on exegesis as religious practice (e.g., textual divination and related phenomena). The second invited session will be a panel retrospective on Stanley Stowers’s A Rereading of Romans (Yale, 1994) in the twenty-five years since its publication. For the two open-call sessions, as usual, we invite paper proposals on any and all topics pertinent to the Section description above.
