Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Hebrew Bible, History, and Archaeology program unit invites papers for open sessions. Papers should fit broadly with the mission of the program unit, reflect critically upon the relationship between the biblical literary materials, history of ancient Israel and Judah, and material culture, and to develop and model theoretical positions on the relationship between these corpora and disciplines. In addition, we have two invited sessions planned. FIRST SESSION: "Beyond Iconography: Reconsidering the Relationship between Text and Image in Ancient Israel." SECOND SESSION: A joint session with Philology in Hebrew Studies and Biblical Lexicography is planned with both submitted and invited papers that will consider the role of material culture in the study of biblical language.
