The ISBL Unit 'Stylistics and the Hebrew Bible' and the EABS group 'Literary Features-Fact or Fiction' are inviting papers for a joint session on the theme "Up in the Hebrew Bible." Papers are welcomed that address literal as well as metaphorical or conceptual spaces of height and elevation. Spaces can include, but are by no means limited to, mountains, temples, thrones, Jerusalem, spaces of happiness, and divine spaces. Abstracts should indicate which spaces will be discussed in the paper, which methodology will be used, and what insights the paper offers in the stylistics of high spaces in the Hebrew Bible. A selection of papers will be peer reviewed for publication. In addition, both units will organize separate sessions open to all who address the main research aim of the units as described on the respective websites (see below). When in doubt, please feel free to contact the chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org, or alternatively at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
