The Calls For Papers are ordered by Call for Papers Deadline
The 11th Mainz International Colloquium on Ancient Hebrew (11. MICAH)
Call for Papers Deadline: the call will be closed when the optimal number of proposed papers for each are accepted
Conference Date: from Friday, 1st to Sunday 3rd November 2013
Location: Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany
E-mail Submission: email@example.com
Topics of the meeting cover grammar and linguistics of Ancient and
Classical Hebrew (Epigraphic and Biblical Hebrew, Qumran and related
Hebrew, and Ben Sira), as well as studies of adjacent Semitic
languages and epigraphy, as for instance Ugaritic, Phoenician-Punic,
Old and Imperial Aramaic, Syriac, Moabite and Edomite. Topics on
general epigraphy, paleography, adjacent non-Semitic (e.g.
Philistine), and general linguistics in connection with these
languages are also welcome.
We encourage scholars in the field to give lectures of preferably
20-30 minutes on a topic of their choice.
Depending on papers submitted, topics will be arranged into special
sessions within the following areas:
Lexicography & Semantics
Epigraphy & Palaeography
General topics of Northwest Semitic paleography, and other.
Conference languages are German, English, and French. As we wish to
avoid parallel sessions, the call will be deemed closed when the
optimal number of proposed papers for each are accepted. For this
reason, if you are considering participation, the earlier you send
your proposal the better.
Postgraduates, or PhD. doctorate students are explicitly invited to
present their projects where they might benefit from collegial
discussions and a friendly, non-conceited atmosphere. Any one applying
in this category, please indicate your institution and supervisor.
For participation, we request a fee of 40 Euro, which is due on site.
For those who present a paper, participation is free. Active students
may request the suspension of fees, which might be granted depending
on the availability of funds.
Please send paper proposals to the undersigned ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
or to MICAH@uni-mainz.de and indicate the topic (preliminary or
working title) and the estimated length of presentation.
While no formal pre-registration form is needed, for planning
purposes, it is nevertheless important that we receive soon an email
declaration of intent, at the above address.
We are not organizing travel or housing arrangements, but will gladly
inform you on available lodging near the University.
