We are inviting scholars and students in Hebrew studies and in related disciplines to submit an at most 1-page-long abstract for the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Conference. You are kindly asked to do so using this web form by the deadline of 19 November 2018. Please consider the following when preparing your abstract.

The topic of a presentation may cover any subfield of Hebrew studies, including among others: the Hebrew Bible and its historical, archaeological, cultural and religious context, the Hellenistic and Roman period, Qumran and early Judaism, rabbinical and medieval Jewish literature, Jewish history, social history, cultural history, history of religion, and so forth. Welcome are works employing historical, social scientific, philosophical, ethnographic and anthropological, literary, linguistic and translations studies methodologies, as well. However, theological discussions related to any particular confession, independently of their scholarly worth, fall outside the scope of the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Conference.

Speakers will have 30 minutes at their disposal, which is best used as 20-22 minutes for the talk and 8-10 minutes for the discussion. The language of the talks can be either Hungarian or English. We expect the presentation of new results, either unpublished, or recently published, but unknown to the broader audience.

Submissions of at most 1-page-long anonymous abstracts in pdf format are welcome via the web form until the deadline, 19 November 2018. Three forms of submission are available:

  • Regular abstract: anonymous submission by students and scholars who are not members of the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Society, but also by members. These abstracts undergo regular double-blind peer review, in order to ensure the quality of the conference.
  • Member abstract: members of the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Society who will have paid their membership dues of 2018 by the submission deadline can also submit a non-anonymous abstract. Their membership of the Society will be the guarantee for the quality of their papers presenting novel research results, which we shall aim at including in the programme.
  • Poster: preliminary outcomes of newly started and on-going research projects, student projects of “junior kind”, as well as topics best fitting the visual modality, and demonstrations of databases and software will have the chance to be presented in a separate poster session.
