The NTCS Home Page has moved! I am the internet editor of the newsletter and since I am no longer at Tulane we are moving the site. Unfortunately when the domain targum.org expired someone snatched it up and is now demanding payment for it so… Targum.info is the new domain name! Please update any references you may have on your sites (and I am going to edit the Wiki entry today).
This is also the home for the International Organization for Targumic Studies. Don’t forget that the call for papers for the triennial IOTS meeting is up and due next week:
The Fifth Congress of the International Organization for Targumic Studies (IOTS) is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, 12-13 July 2007, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It will be held in conjunction with the XIXth Congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament (IOSOT) in Ljubljana during 15-20th July 2007. As with past meetings, registration and accommodations will be arranged through the IOSOT, whose website is located at: http://www.iosot2007.si.
We are pleased to announce a call for short papers in the following categories:
1. Language, Dating and Inter-relationships among the targumim; translational theory and the targumim.
2. Exegesis; Relationships with other rabbinic and contemporary literature (halakhic, aggadic, patristic, historical etc.).
3. Theology, Eschatology and Sitz im Leben of the targums.
4. Text-criticism, manuscript history, and stemmatology.
