Call for Papers: SBL Annual Meeting 2014, the Pseudepigrapha Section

The call for papers for the SBL Annual Meeting 2014 in San Diego is now open. Here is the call from the Pseudepigrapha Section: 

"The Pseudepigrapha Section is planning to have three sessions at the Annual Meeting in San Diego. The first will be a closed session. Four invited speakers will honor the life’s work of Professor Michael Stone of The Hebrew University. Then two invited speakers will review Andrei A. Orlov’s book Heavenly Priesthood in the Apocalypse of Abraham (Cambridge University Press, 2013). The second session is entitled “Notions of Time in Early Judaism and Christianity.” We invite papers that explore attempts to make sense of the passage of time, broadly conceived, in early Jewish and Christian writings. Preference will be given to papers that are not concerned with the calendars but explore the conceptualization of time across diverse genres of literature. The third session will be an open session. Young scholars and new voices in Pseudepigraphic Studies are especially encouraged to submit abstracts."

The deadline is 5 March 2014.
