Joshua-Judges


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Three sessions: (1) Open Session on Building Data for the Study of Joshua-Judges. Paper proposals that deal with the conference theme of "Labor and Migration" within a specific text or texts within Joshua-Judges are welcome, though papers on passages unrelated to the conference theme will be considered as well; (2) Open Session. This session seeks papers that deal with the conference theme of "Labor and Migration" in Joshua-Judges but are not focused on a particular passage. We welcome proposals for papers that will utilize diverse methodological techniques and/or synthetic approaches for the study of Joshua-Judges, or that will seek to place these books in a particular methodological landscape; (3) Together with the Biblical Law section, we invite papers for a joint session on law in the books of Joshua and Judges. We are especially interested in papers dealing with the use, reuse, or reinterpretation of legal traditions that are present in other biblical texts, principally the Pentateuch or other parts of the Deuteronomistic History. Please specify for which session your proposal is intended.
