Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In Adelaide 2020, the Place, Space, and Identity section is planning two open sessions: (1) The first will focus on social aspects of place, space, and identity in biblical texts. What is implied by being “in” or “out” a society, being part of "this world" or "other worlds"? Most welcome are papers relating to the background of the history of colonialization. The second session welcomes exegetical papers referring to place, space, and identity in a more general way. Here we will prefer papers dealing with the exegesis of one or several biblical texts either from the Old or New Testament.
