Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2015 meeting we are planning two sessions. One will be a joint session with Health Care and Disability. We encourage presentations related to issues concerning family and health including but not limited to the care of the ill or disabled children, disability and gender roles, and geriatric illness/health care. The second will be an open session. We encourage paper proposals on a broad range of topics relating to families and children in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Testament, early Christianity, or the Greco-Roman world in general. Submissions from a variety of perspectives, such as gender, medicine, archaeology and literature, are welcome.
