Call for Papers: November 2015 in Atlanta

psybibs.call4papers.fwSBL Annual Meeting

November 21-14, 2015
Atlanta, GA

We always welcome proposals for papers that address Biblical texts, themes, figures and/or readers using the concepts and interpretive tools of any field of psychology. We urge the use of the original Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic, especially when the argument of your paper rests on the meanings of specific words or phrases.

For 2015, we are particularly interested in papers that offer psychological perspectives as applied to character studies, with special focus on “Psychological Profiling of Strong Women in the Bible.”

We also welcome any papers that highlight methods, models, and approaches in the interface between psychology and Biblical studies, including from the emerging fields of neurotheology, brain physiology and religious experience, and evolutionary psychology.

Proposals are due by March 4, 2014

Submit proposals online
