University of Cambridge seminar: ‘Intertext and Allusion in Jewish-Greek Literature’

Registration is now open for the one-day seminar, ‘Intertext and Allusion in Jewish-Greek Literature’, scheduled to take place on the 24th of June 2021.

The focus of this seminar is the way in which Jewish authors writing in Greek engage intertextually with different sources, both Jewish and non-Jewish. By bringing together classicists and religious studies scholars, our aim is to restore the status of Jewish-Greek writings as Greek literary works while also providing insight into the literary practices of a minority community in the Hellenistic world.

The conference will take place entirely online (via Zoom) and with pre-circulated papers. Please see below for the program.

To register, please complete this form, making sure to sign up using the same email address that you use for your Zoom account.

Please note that places are limited. By registering to attend, you are committing to reading the pre-circulated papers in advance. Each speaker will briefly summarize and reflect on their work, but the majority of each session will involve discussion of their written submission.

Papers will be accessible from Thursday 10th June
