Sofia 2024 Call for Papers

This coming year, 2024, we will have open sessions with papers on a broad range of topics dealing with prophetic literature. We invite submissions of papers that discuss concrete analysis for prophetic pericopes; papers that discuss fundamental prophetic phenomena and their significance in the context of a book or relationships between books; and papers that discuss different reading methods and their implications for the analysis process and the research conclusions.    

We will have one joint session with ‘The Book of Jeremiah’ unit. We invite scholars to share their research in relation to Jeremiah 6. Short introductory lectures (with handouts) will open the way to an open discussion with all the participants.
