Toulouse 2022 Call for Papers
Putting the tools to the test: New Testament and Apocryphal texts
The sessions of the third year of our research group will focus on the application of methodology and on putting the tools that have already been developed to the test. We would like to focus on two texts, one from the NT and one from the field of apocryphal texts.The group aims for four sessions, which will this year have the character of workshops in which attendants and panelist indulge in practical work with the tools. After the first session has provided us with a set of tools and methods by invited speakers, we will put these tools to the test in the second and third session. Both texts will briefly be introduced by an expert from the field and then be analyzed be the group with the tools that have been introduced in the first session. The fourth and last session is dedicated to discuss insights from the workshops and implications for further research, including the refinement of methodology.
The group invites proposals for the first session (tools) and expects papers that propose applicable methodological steps for working with texts within a social memory framework. Additionally, the group hopes that the presenters join the group for at least one of the workshop-sessions and the wrap-up session in order to discuss and further develop the methods.
