SBL DtrH section call for papers
- The Deuteronomistic History section will be holding an open session at the 2011 SBL annual meeting that will be held in November in San Francisco, and welcomes list members to submit paper proposals. The call for papers closes March 1.
This section discusses the hypothesis of a Deuteronomistic History, first advanced by Martin Noth and further modified by later scholars, and deals with the pre-canonical stages in the composition of Deuteronomy and the Former Prophets. A special interest is given to the question of compositional techniques and to the historical setting of the supposed deuteronomistic milieu. Papers proposed for this section should interact in some fashion with the idea of a "Deuteronomistic" history work, whether the concept is affirmed, rethought or rejected.
Proposals may be submitted at
