EABS 2019 Call for Papers: Septuagint Research Units

The European Association for Biblical Studies (EABS) annual conference is being held at the University of Warsaw in Poland this year from 11-14 August 2019. The proposal period is now open and will remain open until the February 28th. There is a wide range of research units that have opened a call for papers (see here).

Having never been to an EABS event, I don’t have much insight to share. But I certainly hope to participate in the coming years (it won’t be this year, I’m afraid). So I encourage others to submit a proposal and participate.

More specifically, there are two research units devoted to aspects of Septuagint scholarship that I’d like to draw attention to. (more…)

Call for Papers: 2019 IOSOT Congress (Aberdeen)

Although registration is not quite up and running, the call for papers is now open. (more…)
