9780567027078: Constructions of Space I: Theory, Geography, and Narrative (Library Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies)


The Constructions of Ancient Space Seminar ran as a joint project of the American Academy of Religion (AAR) and Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) from 2000-05, the only cross-society venture of its time.  For the first time in the development of biblical studies, participants in the seminar attempted to foreground and critically analyze space with the same theoretical nuance that biblical scholars have traditionally devoted to history.  Among the noteworthy achievements were applications of different critical spatiality theories to both the traditional historical work of biblical geography and to the analysis of biblical narrative.
This volume begins with five essays that represent some of the seminar's most important interdisciplinary theoretical work.  It then moves to two essays on biblical mapping, considered from a cultural studies perspective as a historical enterprise. The volume concludes with two essays that show the interpretive value of critical spatiality theory when used as a lens for reading biblical narrative.
