orion-list IOU: LXX PAPER PRIZE
My apologies for double posting.
The Bulletin of the IOSCS has just recently been
published and in it
was the announcement for the IOSCS's anhual prize for
an outstanding paper
in Septuagint Studies. Since the deadline was the end
of August, the IOSCS
did not want anyone interested in sending a paper not
to do so. As a result
the deadline has been extended until September 20, and
I have appended
the original announcement below.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRIZE FOR OUTSTANDING PAPER IN
The International Organization for Septuagint and
Cognate Studies is offering an annual prize of $250 to
be awarded for an outstanding paper in the field of
Septuagint Studies. This field is construed broadly,
and a paper may focus on any aspect of the study of the
Greek translations of the Jewish Scriptures. The IOSCS
wants to encourage the study of these translations by
younger scholars, and eligibility is thus limited to
advanced graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients
(3 years or less after receiving the degree). The
papers will be judged by a committee constituted of
IOSCS members, and papers receiving prizes will be
published in an appropriate form in the following
Bulletin of the IOSCS. Depending on its assessments of
the papers submitted, the committee may decide not to
award the prize in any given year. The deadline for
submission is August 31 of each year. Papers should be
sent either to Leonard Greenspoon, President IOSCS, The
Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization, Creighton
University, Omaha, NE 68178 or to Benjamin G. Wright,
Department of Religion Studies, Maginnes Hall, 9 W.
Packer Ave., Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA 18015.
