Metaphors in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and Their Reception


Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We invite papers that have their point of departure in the biblical text, but focus on the reception history of HB/OT metaphors. The papers can deal with the reception of the metaphors in post biblical literature, including Jewish and Christian texts, but also the reception history in literature, art or film. The proposal should show both which text material/which metaphors the paper will focus on, which theoretical approach is used in the text reading, and how the metaphors are used or reused.
