It is a real pleasure to work alongside Chris Fresch and a great steering committee to help build the Septuagint Studies section at the annual meeting of ETS. I’m excited to publicize an open call for papers for our 2020 meeting in Providence, RI.
We do not have any specific themes to work with this year, so the possibilities are fairly wide open. If you are in a PhD program or a professor working on a topic in or related to Septuagint, consider sending in a proposal! We are excited to host this year’s sessions and look forward to receiving them. You can begin the submission process here.
If you’re interested, you can read a little about the history of our section here:
2019 Section and Call | 2018 Consultation | 2017 Consultation and Review | 2016 Consultation and Review
If you are a regular in the world of biblical studies conferences, then you are probably not prepared to start thinking about anything other than the ETS, IBR, and/or SBL events in Denver coming up (next month, in case you forgot).
And yet, think you must, especially if you are part of Old Testament scholarship, since the IOSOT Congress is coming up next summer. It is to be held at the University of Aberdeen from 4-9 August 2019 in the newly renovated and refurbished Music Hall. There is a dedicated website here.
Although registration is not quite up and running, the call for papers is now open. (more…)
