Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the Adelaide meeting in 2020 we will organize two sessions: one thematic and one open session. The first session welcomes papers discussing suspense creation in biblical narrative. The Bible like all good literature, aims at captivating the reader. The session will deal with methods used by the biblical authors for building tension and drama in the narrative in order to interest the reader in the literary work. The session is open to different methodological approaches with a special interest in narratology. Insights into literary elements building suspense or curiosity on the part of the reader, both in relation to formulation, structuring and ordering of the narrative or any other literary aspect contributing to the suspense and drama of the narrative are desirable. The second session will be open to all who are interested in stylistics and the Hebrew Bible, including semantic, structural, grammatical, phonetic or other features. The goal is to explore the relation between form and meaning of the text drawing on a variety of approaches (rhetorical, narratological, cognitive, literary, ideological...).
