A ‘new’ and exciting conference:
and, Critical Theory AND Reception seminar
University of Sheffield, 14-15 September, 2011
This seminar will be dedicated to some of the latest developments in biblical studies. Building on the success of the Bible and Critical Theory seminar and journal in the southern hemisphere, this approximate northern hemisphere equivalent will welcome papers in the general areas of critical theory, cultural studies and reception history. Reception history will be broadly understood to include the use, influence and receptions of biblical texts in all aspects of culture (e.g. film, pop music, literature, politics etc). Some time may also be dedicated to developing research grants and networks. This two-day seminar will be held in Sheffield, 14-15 September, 2011. The seminar will be free, though accommodation will have to be sort privately (for more information see here). Further details (including confirmed speakers, times and locations) will be made available here on the Sheffield Biblical Studies blog in due course.
Anyone interested in presenting a paper (typically in a 30 minute slot) or would like any other further information, should contact James Crossley and/or John Lyons. Paper proposals should include a title and abstract (c. 250 words). Postgraduate students are warmly invited to offer paper proposals. The deadline for participation and call for papers is 1 August, 2011.
