INFO: web - call
The Levites and Priests in History and Tradition Section welcomes all proposals on the social and historical roles of cultic personnel in ancient Israel and early Judaism or on the literary presentation of those figures in early scriptural traditions. For the 2017 meeting in Boston, we have a particular interest in proposals on gender and on cultic personnel in the wider ancient Near East.
Please note that we are planning to expand the scope of our program unit beyond just priests and levites to include any kind of cultic personnel, in the Bible or the ANE more broadly. This shift doesn't appear in our program unit's name (yet), so people with relevant proposals might not think to look at our call. Please let your colleagues and students know!
