Emerging Voices in Samuel Studies
April 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - April 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
The Emerging Voices in Samuel Studies Symposium focuses on new and innovative work in the text of 1-2 Samuel, the socio-historical contexts that gave rise to its composition and transmission, and the plethora of interpretive responses the text has occasioned. Hosted by the Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies Department, with sponsorship from the Mosse-Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, the Religious Studies Program, and the Program in Integrated Liberal Studies, and thanks to the generous support of The Anonymous Fund, newly established and budding scholars in various stages of early career development will gather to share and discuss their ongoing work on early Israel and one of the key texts that speaks to its beginnings over April 25-27, 2019. The Symposium is highlighted by four plenary sessions open to the public focusing on various avenues of inquiry within 1-2 Samuel: Prof. Sara Milstein and Drs. Sarah Yardney, Ingrid Lilly, and Andrew Knapp will each be sharing their work in a series of plenary sessions between Thursday evening and Saturday morning of the Symposium weekend.
