Requirements for Participation

Intertextuality and the Hebrew Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We are planning to have three sessions for 2020. There will be TWO joint-sessions (invited papers) with the “Intertextuality in the New Testament” section. Our theme this year is “Human Violence in the Hebrew Bible, Early Jewish Writings, and the New Testament." Papers should ideally cross testamental or canonical boundaries: e.g., (a) examine intertextual connections in theological themes, rhetoric or rationales that sanction or prohibit human violence across the literary corpora; (b) look at intertextual connections in the depiction of the Other as the object of human violence; and/or (c) use contemporary or new methods of intertextuality to interpret texts across bodies of literature on the issue of violence. The THIRD session is an OPEN session (we are accepting paper proposals) on “Intertextuality and the Hebrew Bible” with preference given to proposals related to this year’s theme stated above.
