This session showcases cutting-edge scholarship from emerging Old Testament scholars sponsored by Fellows of the Institute for Biblical Research. All are welcome to attend. Summaries of the papers will be read at the session, leaving opportunity for discussion. Papers will be available for review by October 1 on this page. Contact Rick Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Ph.D. Supervisors, Readers, and Examiners: Please consider nominating your best Ph.D. student or recent Ph.D. graduate (within 5 years of completion) for a presentation at our Emerging Scholars sessions on the Friday afternoon before the plenary IBR lecture. Even if you were not directly involved but know of a recent and outstanding Ph.D., you may nominate that person.
Ph.D. students and recent graduates: Please consider contacting your supervisor about nominating you for this significant opportunity to present a paper as an emerging scholar. If accepted, the nominator must be present at the Friday afternoon presentation of the scholar’s paper. Take advantage of this opportunity to present a paper before a sympathetic, yet critical, audience, and an engagement in serious dialogue with other scholars where your voice is heard. All are welcome, regardless of gender or ethnicity.
OT nominations and papers should be sent to Rick Hess (email@example.com) by February 28, 2020.
Note that those who have already presented in the OT or NT sessions cannot present a second time in either session; nor should the same person apply to both sessions in the same year.
