Book of Deuteronomy

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: At the 2019 meeting we will be holding three sessions: The focus of our two invited sessions is on “The Politics of Deuteronomy”. The first of these will deal with historical-critical work on/related to the Constitutional passage Deut 16:18–18:22, whereas the second will critically engage with the rôle of this passage in political theory. Finally, we will host an open session. For this we welcome proposals on any aspect of Deuteronomy, particularly on its literary history and development. We especially encourage submissions which touch upon similar topics to those of the invited sessions.
