Syracuse 2023 Call for Papers
For the 2023 EABS meeting in Syracuse, the “Anthropology and the Bible” group will have a special session devoted to the concept and the practice of patronage, or patron-client relationships, and their usefulness for understanding social and political structures both in the narrative world of the Bible and in the history of ancient Palestine. This session will have mostly invited papers, but do get in touch with the research unit's chairs if you are interested in submitting a proposal for this session.
We also invite paper proposals for an open session addressing other topics related in general to anthropology and the Bible. Please see the description of the research unit above for topics.
Finally, we plan to mark and celebrate the publication of the new T & T Clark Handbook of Anthropology and the Hebrew Bible (Bloomsbury), edited by E. Pfoh, during the meeting in Syracuse.
