Call for papers: Tenth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament

The tenth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament will be held in Birmingham from Monday 20 to Wednesday 22 March 2017.

The title of the colloquium is "Lives of the Text", with a double focus:
1) the significance of liturgy in the textual transmission of the New Testament (e.g. lectionary manuscripts, canticles);
2) reflections on D.C. Parker's The Living Text of the Gospels twenty years after its publication.
As in previous years, accommodation has been reserved at Woodbrooke Quaker Studies Centre; the booking form for the colloquium should be returned by 20 February 2017; there is a discount for bookings received and paid by 13 January.

Proposals are invited for papers related to the above topics to be delivered at the colloquium. The standard slot will be 30 minutes (to include questions). Proposals should be submitted to Hugh Houghton by Tuesday 3 January 2017 at the latest; all submissions will be acknowledged by email and a programme released in the early New Year.
