Requirements for Participation

Transmission of Traditions in the Second Temple Period

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The unit will host two sessions in 2023, one open session and one session with invited speakers. The first session is open for all proposals directly related to the agenda. We hope that the proposed papers would focus on processes of transmitting traditions in the Second Temple period and the practical mechanics employed in such processes. The second session is an invited session that focuses on ”Performance and Tradition”, discussing the concepts of orality, writing and performance, and their significance for processes of transmission.
