Macro Analysis of Hebrew Poetic and Prophetic Discourse
October 18, 2023 @ 7:15AM — October 21, 2023 @ 5:00PM Central Time (US & Canada)
Can Hebrew poetic and prophetic discourse be analyzed on the macro level?
Most work on Hebrew discourse has focused on lower levels of the discourse, leaving room for more research on methods for analyzing entire Hebrew writings. But poetic and prophetic writings pose special challenges, such as their compositional histories and anthological nature. These factors make pragmatic analysis especially challenging, if it is even possible. Join us as we explore the problems and potential solutions to analyzing the macro-structure of Hebrew poetry and prophecy.
Co-sponsored by Dallas International University, SIL International, and Fontes Press, this one-day conference will feature a plenary speaker (TBD), roundtable discussion, and up to 20 selected papers. Authors of exceptional papers will be invited to contribute to an edited volume on the topic. A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided for in-person attendees. Virtual attendance via Zoom will also be an option.
