      Dear All

      The Ethiopic Bible and Literature Program Unit of SBL welcomes paper proposals for this years annual meeting in November. The deadline for proposals is March 1st. The steering committee would welcome papers for the proposed open session:

      Open Session: Ideology, Sociology and Literary Formation in the Ethiopic Tradition This session invites proposals that contribute to a deeper understanding of the unique Ethiopic Christian tradition. Papers are invited exploring the external influences from Christian traditions, including Greek, Syriac, Arabic, and other religious traditions, including Jews and Muslims in the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsular. Papers are invited exploring how Ethiopian theologians and community leaders developed their own sense of identity, expressing these through their development of the biblical text, or which explore theological, historical, or sociological perspectives on the various works of literature, translated into or composed in Ethiopic, particularly papers exploring the ancient roots of Ethiopic thought. This tradition also developed its own technology and sociology of manuscript production, and papers are invited investigating this aspect, as well as the issues of digitization, cataloguing and access to the relevant manuscripts.

      We would also welcome proposals related to Syrian-Ethiopian connections.
