Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2023 Annual Meeting, the Chronicles-Ezra-Nehemiah (CEN) section will hold three sessions. 1) An invited book review panel on Tamara Cohn Eskenazi's Ezra: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary, Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries (Yale University Press, 2023). 2) A co-sponsored session with the Gender and Sexuality in the Bible program unit. The session invites proposals that relate gender / sexuality to Chronicles, Ezra, and/or Nehemiah. We are particularly interested in proposals that engage with the theme of genealogy (papers on mixed marriages will be given low priority). 3) An open session. We welcome paper proposals on any topic relevant to the program unit, and we especially encourage early-career scholars to submit proposals to the open session.
