Call for Papers
For the Berlin conference, we invite presentations in English dealing with the apparent tension between the utopian character of the society that is imagined in these ‘laws’ and their focus on down-to-earth politics and economics, and on the relation of this ‘utopian’ society to the ‘Israel’ of the book’s framework.
We also welcome papers dealing with the society envisioned when the ‘legal’ core is read as a part of Deuteronomy as a whole.
As swift publication of accepted papers presented in the sessions is planned, we expect potential authors to supply final versions within a month after the conference. To enhance the benefit of congenial exchange during the conference, drafts will be circulated in advance among all the presenters and to interested members of the audience (please request drafts from the chairs in the weeks preceding the conference).
