International Meeting 2022

The upcoming 2022 SBL International Meeting will be held in Salzburg, Austria from July 17-21, 2022. We are excited for the opportunity to meet with international scholars again, for an in-person event. Although it is unusual for us to open housing a full year in advance of the International Meeting, a separate event that will be taking place in the city at the same time as our meeting makes it very important that we do so. The Salzburg Summer Festival is a large local event, which brings attendees to the city from all over the world. Because of the size of this event, we recommend that you secure housing for our meeting well in advance of the timeframe you would typically use.

As such, we are pleased to announce that we have secured blocks of rooms at several nearby hotels. Please click here  https://na.eventscloud.com/ehome/623829/1132835/ for booking instructions and more information about the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Salzburg!

Applications for new International Meeting program units (to begin in 2022 in Salzburg) are due 1 September. Proposals can be submitted using this form.”

After the Corinthian Women Prophets: Reimagining Rhetoric and Power
Joseph A. Marchal, editor

Thirty years after the publication of Antoinette Clark Wire’s groundbreaking The Corinthian Women Prophets, an interdisciplinary, international, and intergenerational group of scholars reflects upon Wire’s impact on New Testament scholarship. Essays pursue historical and theoretical possibilities using methods ranging from rhetorical analysis to feminist and other politically and ethically attuned methods of interpreting Paul’s letters and the history of ancient Mediterranean assemblies. Each contributor reconsiders how both the methods and results of Wire’s work reveal the possibilities of other approaches and other people who are worth our attention and effort.
