Wuppertal 2021 Call for Papers
This unit is not accepting any new proposals for the 2021 conference
For the 2021 meeting in Wuppertal, “The Biblical World and Its Reception” seminar will be holding two/three sessions.
As usual, we welcome papers on any topic that is relevant to the seminar’s general interests in the reception, influence, and impact of the Bible.
We are, however, this year especially interested in papers which focus on the reception and cultural afterlives of biblical women, and the ways in which they have been reinterpreted, reimagined, and redeployed across different media (art, literature, film, etc.).
In addition, since 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the discovery of the Nag Hammadi library, we also invite papers which take as their focus these and similar manuscript discoveries, considering their impact upon and permeation into popular culture.
