I have just been informed throught the British New Testament Society of the the following news item from St Mary's College, the School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews.
Call for Papers
The Biblical Studies Seminar of the School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews invites paper proposals on economic features of early Christianity, as reflected in extant data from the first three centuries ce. Of particular interest are proposals with a theological component that consider the topic in relation to:
1) New Testament texts; or
2) the use of the New Testament or the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible in Christian writings of the first three centuries ce.
The accepted papers are expected to be included in the Biblical Studies Seminar programme from February through May 2008. The Seminar will incur the presenters’ costs for B&B and for travel within Britain. Some of the papers may be published in a volume of collected essays.
Please send proposals of 500 words, by 15 September, to Dr Bruce Longenecker (BWL2@st-andrews.ac.uk), indicating full contact details and availability between February and May 2008. Proposals are invited from scholars at PhD level through to senior professors. Proposals from PhD students need to be accompanied by a letter of approval and recommendation from their PhD supervisor.
Any interested takers out there? Good opportunity and exposure for PhD candidates.
