This year we shall emphasize cooperation with other units since this is a joint meeting with the SBL. We are planning 1-2 sessions each with the following units. (1) 1-2 joint session(s) with the SBL Contextual Biblical Interpretation is being planned and proposals invited, on the topic of "Government, Ethics and Resistance: Case Studies in the HB and the NT". (2) 1-2 sessions with the EABS research project Beyond Empire, on the topic “After Empire: The Role of the Bible in Young Nations (1917-2017) Emerging from Major 19th and 20th Century Empires”; the goal of the session will be to explore the reception and influence of the Bible in nations, such as (but not only) Finland and various Balkan states, which established their independence after breaking away from a large empire. All sessions will be a combination of solicited and proposed papers. We welcome papers that examine the biblical text from within a reader’s explicitly articulated context, personal as well as communal, while firmly anchored in clear methodology.
Please enter proposals into the SBL system by the due date, February 18 2018. For queries and questions: Jeremy Punt (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Athalya Brenner-Idan (email@example.com)
