Call for Papers, International SBL in Rome

The call for papers began 15 September and will end on 31 January. David Trobisch and our own Tommy Wasserman are heading the panel which seems most germane to this blog:

Working with Biblical Manuscripts (Textual Criticism)
Papers concentrating on any aspect of the practical work with manuscripts of the Bible are welcome: managing variants, computer assisted tools, preservation techniques, evaluating the evidence of versions, papyrological insights, technical developments, social historical studies, scribal habits, producing critical editions, new projects, systematic-theological problems, teaching text-criticism in an academic setting, etc.

Find out about other sections, here.

The meeting will be held in the Pontifical Biblical Institute 30 June – 4 July, 2009.


  1. Please remind me of this on Jan 30th.

  2. Jan 30th ... isn't that actually early for you to write an abstract? You will surely grow spoiled with all that extra time. I will remind you on the 31st.
