The Call for Papers for the SBL Annual Meeting in Chicago, November17-20 has now been published.
Psychology and Biblical Studies Section
We welcome proposals for papers that address Biblical texts, themes, figures and/or readers and interpreters using the concepts and interpretive tools of any named field of psychology.
We are particularly interested in papers which examine readers, the process of reading, appropriation of texts, and their impact on individuals and communities from a psychological perspective.
We also plan review sessions of two recent books: Kamila Blessing’s Families of the Bible (Praeger 2010), and Barbara Leung Lai’s Through the ‘I’-Window: The Inner Life of Characters in the Hebrew Bible (Sheffeild Phoenix Press, 2011).
Questions? Contact the Chair, D. Andrew Kille, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To propose a paper for the session, see full details and online submission information on the SBL website.
Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2012.
