Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Given that Australia is home to one of the world's centres of academic Coptic Studies (namely, Macquarie University), as well as two Coptic Orthodox theological colleges, for the 2020 International Meeting at the University of Adelaide we are issuing a call for papers that deal with biblical (Old Testament or New Testament), early Christian, or potentially early Jewish writings preserved in Coptic. Particularly welcome are paper proposals on papyrological, codicological, or scribal issues regarding Coptic material (including ostraca), as well as those investigating text-critical matters, whether entirely within the Coptic tradition itself or for which the Coptic is an important witness among others. In addition, there will also be, as usual, open sessions for papers concentrating on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Bible and/or other early Jewish or Christian writings (in any classical language).
