- THE ANCIENT GALILEE IN INTERACTION - RELIGION, ETHNICITY, AND IDENTITY
October 23-25, 2004, Yale University, New Haven CT
- Call for Papers -
The correlation between religion, ethnicity and identity in antiquity has
for many years been a main focus of several disciplines in the humanities.
The ancient Galilee is especially well suited as a site for analyzing
problems of cultural interaction and identity formation, as few other
regions of the ancient Mediterranean world attract so much interdisciplinary
research. The objective of the conference is to bring together scholars of
texts, religious studies, history, and archaeology to reflect on new
archaeological finds, new readings of ancient texts, and promising
methodologies that help understand the complex ways of interaction and
identity formation in ancient Galilee.
The three day conference, to be held at Yale University, is sponsored by
Yale University (with support from the Kempf Fund from the Office of the
Provost, Yale Divinity School, Judaic Studies, and the Department of
Religious Studies) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany.
Presentations already scheduled include addresses by Professors Sean Freyne
(Trinity College, Dublin); Jodi Magness (University of North Carolina,
Chapel Hill), and Seth Schwartz (Jewish Theological Seminary).
Proposals for papers (20-25 minutes, with additional time for questions and
discussion) are invited. Those interested in presenting papers are asked to
submit the following - title of paper - 100 word abstract - full name,
address, and instituitional affiliation of author - email address, telephone
number(s), postal address
Papers should not exceed 20-25 minutes with another 20 min. for discussion.
The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2004. Papers or paper proposals
