After a long time away from my blogging, partly due to a heavy cold (been barking like a dog for weeks), I’m recovering, and am back at my desk and PC.
As a new year has begun, it’s time to look forward to see what conferences are coming up in 2015. For us living in the Nordic countries, this is one that should be especially relevant:
Nordic New Testament Conference (May 29-June 2, 2015)
This conference is not an annual one; usually it is held every third or even fourth year in one of the Nordic countries; this time in Århus, Denmark. The Call for Papers are closed, but registration is open untill April 15.
The main speakers will be:
- Paula Fredriksen, Jerusalem: “Paul, the Apostle of Judaizing“
- Runar M. Thorsteinsson, Reykjavik: “Jesus, the Philosopher”
- Petri Luomanen, Helsinki: “Judaism and Anti-Judaism in Apocryphal Gospels“
- Ole Davidsen, Aarhus: “The Story and its Emotions: Narrative Genre, Human Passion, and New Testament Religion“
- James Kelhoffer, Uppsala: “The Reception of Biblical Traditions in Second Clement“
- Turid Karlsen Seim, Oslo/Rome: “End without End: Textual and Hermeneutical Reflection on the Gospel Endings as Aborted Closure“
and there will be seminars focusing on The Radical New Perspective on Paul, Jesus and the Gospels, New Testament Traditions in the Context of Early Judaism, Emotions in the New Testament, The Reception of Biblical Traditions, and Ideological Criticism and Hermeneutics in New Testament Studies.
