EABS new session
I should mention this, stolen straight from Reception of the Bible:
The Biblical World and its Reception, Seminar at EABS, Lisbon, 3-7th August 2008
The Biblical World and its Reception
Chair: W. John Lyons (W.J.Lyons@bristol.ac.uk)
This seminar aims to provide a forum in which participants can engage in the theoretical issues pertaining to the reception of the 'biblical world' throughout the last 2500 years and/or present specific examples of how biblical and chronologically related texts have been appropriated within later cultural, political and artistic contexts. Insights drawn from a wide range of range of disciplines are encouraged and the reception history of any relevant text from the biblical period will be considered suitable material for presentation and discussion.
This seminar will begin in 2008, and proposals for papers for that meeting may be submitted to the Chair. Audience participation on the day is warmly invited, and short papers will be presented with an equivalent time provided for discussion.
Agenda for 2008
The initial meeting of this programme in 2008 is planned to include a session of papers devoted to a special theme (The Bible and Popular Music) and an open session. Papers are invited for both sessions. There will also be a discussion of future topics and the direction of the programme.
More on this in the months to come...
