CALL:


The Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew program unit solicits papers for four sessions at the Society of Biblical Literature annual meeting, 18-21 November 2017 in Boston. The first session (co-sponsored with NAPH) is non-thematic/open and entitled "Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew." Papers that address the study of Biblical Hebrew using a well-articulated linguistic method are welcome, and those that apply linguistics to particular Biblical Hebrew constructions or corpuses are especially encouraged. The second session is thematic and is entitled "Linguistic Theories and the Study of Anaphoric Pronouns in Biblical Hebrew." This session will critically examine and compare five main theories that are current in linguistic study (for example Minimalist, Cognitive, Optimality, Typological, Information Structure, etc) and the ways in which they analyse anaphoric pronouns. The third session (co-sponsored with Qumran) is entitled "Biblical Hebrew Linguistics and Qumran Hebrew". The intersection of the linguistic study of Biblical Hebrew with Qumran Hebrew raises a number of important questions: (1) Is Qumran Hebrew distinct from Biblical Hebrew and if so, in what way(s)? (2) Does the Hebrew from Qumran reflect a homogeneous language system (allowing for internal variation) or diverse dialects? (3) What is the role of Qumran Hebrew in the historical linguistic trajectory of Biblical Hebrew and later varieties of Hebrew? (4) What is the sociolinguistics of Qumran Hebrew? Papers should ideally focus on all levels of grammar. The fourth session (co-sponsored with Philology in Hebrew Studies) is entitled "The Relationship between Linguistics and Philology for the Analysis of Biblical Hebrew". Given the fundamentally distinct genealogies (histories of the fields), objectives (universalist vs. particularist), and constituencies participating in these two fields, what might one learn from the other, particularly in application to Biblical Hebrew? Papers should address any aspect of the relationship between linguistics and philology for the analysis of Biblical Hebrew. Submit an abstract to the Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew Seminar (not Section) on-line at http://www.sbl-site.org before 7 March 2017. For questions, contact Prof Jacobus Naude <mailto:naudej@ufs.ac.za>
