Tolouse 2022 Call for Papers
Reading, Theory and Poetics provides a space for theoretically innovative and experimental approaches to biblical scholarship, foregrounding alternative modes of reading and attention to the poetics of biblical literature. The group promotes biblical criticism that draws on the rich heritage of ‘theory’, broadly construed, including but not limited to poetics, deconstruction, post-structuralism, gender theory, race theory, or aesthetics. We seek, moreover, to accommodate work that pushes the boundaries of biblical scholarship and augments conventional hermeneutics. For the meeting in Toulouse in 2022, we invite papers for one open session that engages some aspect of these critical theories or other innovative approaches, and one session that engages with Proverbs.
