10. Mainz International Colloquium on Ancient Hebrew
Mainz, October, 28th – 30th, 2011

Invitation and Call for Papers (1st circular)

The 10th Mainz International Colloquium on Ancient Hebrew (10. MICAH)  
will take place at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (Germany),  
from Friday, 28th to Sunday 30th October, 2011.

You are invited to give a lecture, either a short paper (20 min plus  
5 discussion) or a full lecture (45 min plus 10 discussion), as you  

Topics cover the grammar and linguistics of Ancient and Classical  
Hebrew (Epigraphic and Biblical Hebrew, Qumran and related Hebrew,  
and Ben Sira), as well as studies of adjacent languages and  
epigraphy, for instance Ugaritic, Phoenician-Punic, Old and Imperial  
Aramaic, Moabite and Edomite. Also welcome are topics on general  
epigraphy, paleography, and general linguistics in connection with  
these languages.

Depending on submitted papers, topics will be arranged into special  
sessions, within the following areas:

Biblical Hebrew
Postbiblical Hebrew
Lexicography & Semantics
Epigraphy & Palaeography
General topics of Northwest Semitic paleography.

Conference languages are German, English, and French. As we wish to  
avoid parallel sessions, sessions will be deemed closed when the  
optimal number of proposed papers for each are accepted. For this  
reason, if you are considering participation, the earlier you send  
your proposal the better.

Postgraduates, or PhD. doctorate students are explicitly invited to  
present their projects where they might benefit from collegial  
discussions. Any one applying in this category, please indicate  
clearly your institution and supervisor.

For participation, we request a fee of 40 Euro, which is due on site.  
For those who present a paper, participation is free. Active students  
can request the suspension of fees and it might be granted depending  
on the availability of funds.

Please send paper proposals to the undersigned (lehmann at uni-mainz.de)  
or to MICAH at uni-mainz.de and indicate the topic (preliminary or  
working title) and the preferred length of presentation.

While no formal pre-registration form is needed, for planning  
purposes, it is nevertheless important that we receive soon an email  
declaration of intent, at the above address.

We are not organizing travel or housing arrangements, but will gladly  
inform you on available lodging near the University.
