Requirements for Participation

Bible and Its Influence: History and Impact

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In Buenos Aires we aim to have at least one open session: proposals are welcome on any aspect of the Bible's reception history. For the open sessions our preference is for papers that do not focus on the narrower history of scholarship, but explore wider aspects of the Bible's impact on religions, society and culture, art, literature and music. In addition to this we would particularly welcome papers that take advantage of our location to explore the use and influence of the Bible in Latin America: Argentina of course, but also the wider Spanish and Portuguese-speaking region. With this in mind we are also planning to hold at least one joint session with the SBL 'Bible and Empire' section, on the Bible in the Latin American experience of empire. We are also planning a wider collaboration with the EABS Research Group 'The Bible in the Iberian World', which will focus not only on the Bible in Latin America, but also the broader Iberian context.
