Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: ISBL 2015 is in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is a long way from ISBL's more common European venues. In recognition of this move, Hellenistic Judaism especially welcomes papers on any aspect of diaspora and, particularly, on the reception of Scripture in diaspora. We will also continue to welcome proposals on any topic related to Hellenistic Judaism. In addition, we invite papers for a session on "Slavonic Apocrypha from Hellenistic Jewish literature," to be held jointly with the "Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha" and the "Apocalyptic Literature" program units. This is the first of two sessions (the other at ISBL 2016 in Seoul) that is expected to lead to the formation of a new ISBL unit devoted to the study of Slavonic Apocrypha for the 2017 ISBL meeting in Berlin.
