Call For Papers: The Deuteronomy Program Unit will entertain proposals for one open session at the 2023 annual meeting. Papers should be related to topics on the origin, growth, or reception of the book of Deuteronomy. For the 2023 annual meeting, we will co-host two special joint sessions. First, will be a session “Deuteronomy and Utopia” with the Utopian Studies Consultation. Second, we are pleased to co-host with both the Pentateuch and Genesis Program Units a session entitled “Women and Critical Methodologies in the Study of the Pentateuch.” Both joint-sessions will have invited panelists only.
