Requirements for Participation

Intertextuality and the Hebrew Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Intertextuality and the Hebrew Bible will host four sessions in 2023. We will have two joint sessions: one with “Bible and Visual Art” section, focusing on intertextual engagement between reading the Book of Genesis and various related visual images in the art (OPEN Call) and the other with “Use, Influence, and Impact of the Bible” section for the review of Susanne Scholz, ed. Oxford Handbook of Feminist Approaches to the Hebrew Bible (Invited panels). For our third session (OPEN Call), we invite proposals under the thematic topic of “Intertextuality and Reading Experiences: The Book of Genesis as a Case.” We are interested in proposals dealing with the relationship between intertextuality and various reading strategies, which would occur in re-reading the book. They include source criticism, redaction criticism, literary and rhetorical criticism, gender studies, and contemporary cultural or intersectional connections. The papers which deal with intertextual reading in the heuristic reading experiences will also be welcome. Our final session is OPEN to all proposals related to Intertextuality and the Hebrew Bible, with preference given to the call for our joint sessions and the focus on the book of Genesis. We strongly encourage the participants to reflect on their concept or methodology of ‘intertextuality.’
