Eighth Enoch Seminar: Apocalypticism and Mysticism

Call for Papers Deadline: December 1, 2014
Conference Date: 21 to 26 June, 2015
Location: Italy (near Milan)

The Eighth Enoch Seminar will convene at the Villa Cagnola in Gazzada, Italy (near Milan), from 21 to 26 June, 2015. The meeting is organised by Daniel Boyarin (Berkeley, USA), Lorenzo DiTommaso (Montreal, Canada), and Elliot Wolfson (Santa Barbara, USA), under the guidance of the Founding Director of the Enoch Seminar Gabriele Boccaccini (Michigan, USA).

The Seminar topic is apocalypticism and mysticism, their natures and relationship, in Judaism and Christianity from the Second Temple period through the late antique and early mediaeval centuries. The aim is to discuss the main issues in light of new evidence, methodologies, and approaches, oriented by a desire to advance the discussion along a broad front. While we do not expect to address every issue or answer every question, we do anticipate that the published results of our Seminar will stand as a foundational study for future research. Additional information will be posted on the Enoch Seminar and 4 Enoch websites over the course of the year.

As participation is by invitation only, we invite all interested specialists to contact the Seminar secretary, Jason Zurawski as soon as possible, at the latest by 1 December 2014. Those interested in presenting a short paper should include a proposal containing a paper title and brief abstract. Plenary and short papers circulate in advance and are not read in the sessions, which are devoted primarily to discussion.

CALLS FOR PAPERS: "The River Jordan"

Conference Date: 13-15 July, 2015
Location: Oxford
E-mail Submission: aram@orinst.ox.ac.uk

ARAM Society for Syro-Mesopotamian Studies and the Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies at the University of Miami, through its Director, Prof. Haim Shaked and Prof. David Graf, organise an international conference about the River Jordan, to be held at the Oriental Institute, the University of Oxford, 13-15 July 2015.

The conference aims to focus its attention on the three northern sources of the river Jordan (the Dan, Baniyas, and Hasbani streams) and the area of the Sea of Galilee (the sea itself not a topic of the conference) and the Jordan river's southern course up to where it enters the Dead Sea (the sea itself not a topic of the conference).

Essentially, the conference would cover in its study both banks of the river Jordan (not the hinterland of the riparian countries).

The conference will start on Monday 13th July at 9am, finishing on Wednesday 15th July at 6pm. Each speaker's paper is limited to 45 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for discussion. All papers given at the conference will be considered for publication in a future edition of the ARAM Periodical, subject to editorial review. If you wish to participate in the conference, please contact our Oxford address: ARAM, the Oriental Institute, Oxford University, Pusey Lane, Oxford OX1 2LE, England. Tel. 01865-514041
