Intertextuality in the New Testament

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Intertextuality in the New Testament (INT) Section invites proposals for papers during the 2021 annual meeting. Papers may focus on any aspect of intertextuality and New Testament interpretation, but should articulate the kind of intertextual work or method being employed. First-time presenters are encouraged to propose papers. They should submit their abstract through the SBL website and send the full paper by email to the section co-chairs. INT is also planning two invited plenary sessions. One will be co-sponsored with the John’s Apocalypse in Cultural Contexts Ancient and Modern section, focusing on the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21-22. The second will be a panel review of the section’s second volume of collected essays entitled: Practicing Intertextuality: Ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman Exegetical Techniques in the New Testament published by Cascade, 2021. The book review will feature invited authors and respondents, followed by a panel discussion.
