EABS is excited to announce its seventh graduate symposium, which will take place in Leuven, March 27-29, 2015.
The symposium, which seeks to engender a supportive atmosphere for dialogue across a variety of biblical studies fields and subfields (Hebrew Scriptures, OT, NT, DSS, early Christianity, Septuagint studies, second temple Judaism, rabbinics, reception history, methodologies, etc.), welcomes PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers to present on a topic related to their research area(s).
Participants may format their presentation according to their preference: paper, seminar discussion, workshop session, poster or another form. Every abstract will be reviewed by a team of scholars who will give feedback and suggestions for improvement, if necessary. Our goal is to assist in developing the abstracts to the best possible form and encourage the authors of the best abstracts to submit them to research seminars of the EABS Annual Meeting 2015 in Cordoba and to enter their papers for the EABS Student Prize. During the symposium each student will get 20 minutes to submit their paper which will be followed by an extended discussion. The EABS Graduate Symposium looks forward to welcoming some senior scholars, including the EABS president, Professor Reimund Bieringer (KU Leuven), who will offer feedback and share from their own experience in the field. In addition, the symposium looks forward to continuing its tradition of holding a joint session with graduate students from the University of Alberta. Besides, we have arranged for another trans-Atlantic skype session with students from Emory University!
Candidates should submit their abstracts and/or posters of no more than 300 words to email@example.com no later than January 10th, 2015. Please do not forget to mention the preferred format in the abstract (i.e. paper, workshop, pre-circulated paper, discussion, poster, etc.).
