      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
      should be sent via email to Jürgen Zangenberg (zangenberg@...).

      Please note that the Conference Committee is unable to provide for
      participant travel and lodging expenses. All prospective participants are
      asked to seek funding from their own institutional and organizational
      affiliations. For more information please contact : Dale Martin
      (dale.martin@...), Harold Attridge (harold.attridge@...), or
      Jürgen Zangenberg (zangenberg@...).
