This conference will take place in Uppsala 18-21 September 2015. Number of participants: 60-70. It is arranged within a European network for biblical scholars, OTSEM (Old Testaments Studies: Epistemologies and Methods), representing 16 universities in 8 countries; website: www.otsem.uni-hamburg.de. Initially this network was supported by the research council of the Nordic Ministry, but now it lacks such funding. In 2015 Uppsala will host the annual conference. The overarching aim is to further methodological development and international exchange within the field of Old Testament / Hebrew Bible studies. Another aim is to provide possibilities for younger scholars to discuss with and get qualified response from experts. Hence, there is a strong emphasis on interaction between senior scholars, post-docs, and PhD students
