In Denver, the Assyriology and the Bible Section will host a specia invited session entitled "Revisiting the Amorites," as well as two open sessions in which we consider proposals on any subject related to the study of Assyriology and the Bible. Additionally, we invite papers for a special session "Inclusion and Exclusion among Cultic Personnel” organized jointly with the SBLCultic Personnel in the Biblical World section (to whom proposals should be submitted). Submissions to this joint session should focus on the ancient Near East and should, ideally, be comparative in nature. The session will be dedicated to rules and boundaries governing cultic officiants broadly construed (e.g., gender considerations, exclusive/excluding behaviors, etc.). Submit an abstract to the Assyriology and the Bible Section on-line at www.sbl-site.org before 7 March 2018. For questions, contact Jeffrey Cooley at <firstname.lastname@example.org> or Rannfrid Thelle at <email@example.com> or <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
