As part of a proposed panel for the upcoming International Conference on Narrative, we are seeking papers on the general theme of Biblical narrative. Scholars are not limited to a specific period or genre, and may choose to compare/contrast Biblical material with other literary narratives. A grounding in narrative theory will help since this is primarily a conference for specialists, but it is not necessary for theory to be your primary area of study. We welcome scholars from all fields, and anticipate particular interest from those in English, cultural studies, and comparative/religious studies.

To be considered, please submit a 200-300 word abstract to Michele Wilbert ( by October 1, 2009. The actual conference will be held April 8-11, 2010 at Case Western University (Cleveland, OH).
