      The Bible & Empire consultation of the ISBL announces an open call for papers for two sessions at its 2011 meeting in London.

      Session I is designed to examine the influence of imperial political powers on the development of the Hebrew Bible in its historical context. This year special attention will be paid to Neo-Assyria, but papers relating to other imperial powers in the ancient Near East are also welcome.

      Session II is designed to examine the use and reception of the Bible in the context of the British Empire: from the perspective of those subjected to British imperial power as well as by empire-builders themselves.

      Abstracts should be submitted via the SBL website in the usual way, no later than 31 January. Queries may be addressed to the chairs (clc65@..., j.stokl@...).
