Call for papers – Eighth Conference of the RBS

Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome

from Thursday 29 to Saturday 1 October 2022

The Society is calling for papers to be presented in its specific field of Biblical and Semitic Rhetoric. Papers can be an analysis of texts, biblical or other, but in the field of Semitics, or treat a specific methodological issue.

In addition to the three plenary sessions (55 minutes), there will be also short communications (40 minutes), each one followed by a discussion. These presentations are mainly reserved for professors and researchers, although they are open as well to advanced students at the doctoral level especially, but also the licentiate level.

The deadline for the proposal is 31 December 2021.
