QUMRAN AND THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS

Program Unit Type: Section

Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Qumran and Dead Sea Scrolls unit will have two sessions, one general and one thematic. 1) The general session is open to papers on a variety of topics related to the Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumran. 2) A second session will focus on the intersection of texts and archaeology at Qumran. We are interested in questions, such as ‘To what extent should the Scrolls be taken into consideration in the interpretation of the material data from Khirbet Qumran?’; ‘Why, or why not, should textual and archaeological sources be integrated when interpreting the site?’ Papers may examine the relationship between texts and archaeology from various theoretical and methodological perspectives as well as by providing concrete examples that can illuminate this issue. The thematic session will include papers by invited speakers. We welcome paper proposals for both sessions.

NONBIBLICAL DEAD SEA SCROLLS: THEMES AND PERSPECTIVES

Program Unit Type: Consultation

Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This unit welcomes proposals for papers on the non-biblical Dead Sea Scrolls and encourages critical discussion from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives. The 2011 session is entitled Images of the Feminine in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and papers on any aspects of women, gender, or presentations of the feminine in the Dead Sea Scrolls are welcome. Papers might consider the archaeological, historical or legal presence of women associated with the Scrolls and/or the discursive presence of women and images of the feminine in the literary space of these texts. Scholars are also invited to reflect on methodological concerns raised with the study of women and gender at Qumran.
