Society of Biblical Literature Hosts International Meeting in Germany
As a writer and editor of more than 50 articles and reviews related to Judaic studies, Yaron Eliav serves as associate professor of rabbinic literature and Jewish history of late antiquity at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Heavily involved in Near Eastern and Jewish studies, Yaron Eliav remains a member of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL).
The SBL is the oldest and largest society devoted to investigating the Bible through several academic disciplines. Founded in 1880, the international organization gives its members a chance to develop professionally and intellectually as well as gain support from others who share the same philosophies. The SBL publishes books and journals and hosts meetings, all with the purpose of informing its members on the latest findings.
To connect with members located outside of the United States, the SBL hosts an international meeting with the 2017 meeting scheduled for August 7 through 11 in Berlin, Germany. The 2016 meeting, which took place from July 2 through 7 in Seoul, South Korea, included lectures on a variety of topics, including the Hebrew Bible, scribal conflicts, and feminist interpretations in regards to the Bible.
