Historiography and the Hebrew Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Historiography and the Hebrew Bible program unit is accepting paper proposals for three sessions in San Diego: two sessions that will be general in focus, and one that will focus more specifically on history and gender. For the general sessions, we invite proposals that examine particular historical questions or topics as these pertain to the writings of the Hebrew Bible. Papers that engage contemporary debates surrounding the theories and methods of history-writing within their research are especially welcome. For the session on history and gender, we invite proposals that consider gender within the context of historical method and theory, as a focus of historical study in relation to specific Hebrew Bible texts, or as a concept that interrelates to other socio-cultural foci in the study of history and the Hebrew Bible (e.g., economy, politics, ethnicity, etc.).
