Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2023 Annual Meeting, the Book of Daniel Section is planning to convene three sessions: two open sessions and one joint session to be held together with the Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible section. The invited session will focus on the textual history and traditions of Daniel. For the open sessions, we invite proposals dealing with any topic or issue in the critical interpretation of Daniel, including the MT, the LXX, the Additions to Daniel, and pseudepigraphical materials related to Daniel. The best proposals will indicate a distinctive contribution to a current problem in the study of Daniel, will bring a promising theoretical framework to a particular issue, or will raise new questions about an overlooked problem in the understanding of Daniel. All proposals must go through the SBL proposal submission link on the website.
