Call For Papers: The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS) is soliciting papers for its annual meeting in San Antonio, to be held in conjunction with SBL. We invite 20' papers on any aspect of LXX and cognate literature. One of the sessions will be devoted to the Greek Psalter and the Göttingen Septuagint (chair Felix Albrecht), another will seize the publication of the Oxford Handbook of the Septuagint as an opportunity to reflect on where the field of LXX studies is going (chair Alison Salvesen). Proposals for one of these sessions or on any other relevant topic are welcome and should be submitted through the SBL Annual Meetings website. All presenters and panelists must be members in good standing order of IOSCS. Please direct any queries to Reinhart Ceulemans at
