- CALL FOR PAPERS
Bible & Empire
3-8 July 2011, London
The Bible & Empire consultation of the ISBL announces an open call for papers at its 2011 meeting in London.
Papers should 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 the Neo-Assyrian Empire, but papers relating to other imperial powers in the ancient Near East are also welcome.
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@...).
