Call For Papers
As announced in the last issue of Insights, the Institute invites interested persons to submit papers for possible presentation at an upcoming conference on Latter-day Saint views on the sacrifice of Isaac. The conference will be held at BYU on 11 October 2003.
Papers should deal with some aspect of the sacrifice of Isaac as recorded in Genesis 22 and should reflect close readings of scriptural texts and appropriate use of relevant outside material. Examples of broad topics include but are not limited to typology of the sacrifice of Isaac, literary devices in the account, historical background of the sacrifice, and Latter-day Saint use of the account.
Detailed outlines of proposed presentations were due on 31 January 2003. Further deadlines are as follows:
15 March 2003: Participants whose submissions are provisionally accepted will be notified.
31 August 2003: PowerPoint presentations are due.
31 December 2003: Final drafts for publication are due.
Please send correspondence to Book of Abraham Conference, c/o Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts, WAIH, Provo, UT 84602. Electronic submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
