Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity Unit and SBL Digital Humanities in Biblical, Early Jewish, and Christian Studies Unit

Call for Papers: 

Online Resources and Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity

This session will include both a selection of invited papers and proposals. We are accepting papers that explore online resources relating to traditions and literature in Syriac, Hebrew, Aramaic, Iranian, etc. We are especially interested in proposals that analyze these resources with an eye toward imagining the discipline in a digital age. We are also interested in papers exploring the use of social media for contemporary group identity among communities and diasporas that stem from Eastern Late Antiquity (such as Parsi, Mandaean, and Yezidis, as well as Jews and Christians in and from Iraq and Iran), and how they represent themselves and their traditions online.
