The Aramaic Studies Section of the Society of Biblical Literature invites papers on any aspect of Aramaic language, texts, and culture.
Topics may include Targumim, Qumran Aramaic texts, Syriac biblical versions and exegesis, Samaritan papyri, and Elephantine Aramaic, among others. In addition to one open session, we are planning three thematic sessions for 2017 and especially invite papers on these subjects. One thematic session will focus on the topic of language transfer and contact (the relationship of Aramaic to Greek, Iranian languages, etc.).
A second thematic session will be dedicated to Papyrus Amherst 63.
Finally, we invite papers for a special session on "Aramaic Magic Texts Through the Ages", organized jointly with the SBL Assyriology and the Bible Section; this session will explore the Mesopotamian roots of the Aramaic magic tradition as well as later developments.
The call for papers closes 3/7/2017, 23:59 pm. To propose a paper for this program unit, do so online at:
