Ninth North American Syriac Symposium, "Syriac at the Center", June 11-14, 2023 at Yale University
December 21, 2022
Syriac has often been treated as an auxiliary language in the modern humanities, an adjunct tool to scholarship on Early Christianity, Late Antiquity, early Islam, the histories of theology and of science, and other areas of inquiry. It is an “extra language” in humanistic curricula. This conference welcomes papers on topics that treat Syriac as central, not peripheral, to scholarly investigation. How do our research subjects look when we stand with Syriac and regard other traditions and areas as peripheral?
We welcome particularly papers addressing
Syriac and translation activity
Syriac manuscripts, documents, and epigraphy
Syriac geographical thought
Social and economic history using Syriac sources
Bodily and ritual practices
Development of canon law
Relations with the religious “other” from the Syriac Christian perspective
Philoxenus of Mabbug on the sesquimillennial anniversary of his death
Submit proposal for papers before Jan 2, 2023.
NB: This symposium coincides with the 6th Yale Liturgy Conference, June 12-15, 2023.
