Requirements for Participation

Writings (including Psalms)

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Our section continues to grow at the international meeting and once more we invite papers on any work included in the Writings of the Hebrew Bible. This year we are holding a joint session with the COMPARATIVE STUDIES OF LITERATURE FROM THE PERSIAN AND HELLENISTIC PERIODS section in which a panel of four invited speakers (two specializing in historiographical literature of the Persian and Hellenistic periods, and the other two in Psalms/Psalter studies) will present. We still invite papers on the Psalms for our normal Psalms session. Of course, papers on other books in the Writings and papers on wisdom, apocalyptic, historiography in Chronicles/Ezra-Nehemiah, etc. are encouraged and needed.
