Call for papers: In modern European history, Berlin has been compared to Alexandria in the Hellenistic times. Besides papers on any aspect of Hellenistic Judaism, we especially welcome proposals on the role of major urban centers in determining the authority of biblical interpretations and the canon of the scriptures. Another session will be convened in honor of Berlin’s historical leadership in the European Avant-Garde. For this session paper proposals that represent experimental research, innovative projects, and novel methodologies in research, not only of Hellenistic Judaism but also of biblical scholarship in general, are very welcome. Last, we invite papers for a session on the topic “Slavonic Translations of the Second Temple Texts.” This session will be convened in celebration of the inclusion into ISBL of the “Rethinking Biblical Written Tradition through Slavonic Interpretations” Unit, and held in conjunction with it, the “Apocalyptic Literature” Unit and “Slavonic Apocrypha” Unit (EABS).
