This interactive workshop introduces graduate students and scholars to the application of discourse studies to NT exegesis. It offers an accessible overview of foundational concepts, and does not require a specialized knowledge of linguistics. The instructors lead sessions describing linguistic devices used for structuring or organizing a discourse. This knowledge is then applied to exegesis of select NT passages. The workshop concludes with a question and answer period. For more specific information about the workshop, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
biblicalhumanities.org: Facilitating Resources for Open Global Research & Learning for Biblical Studies
This session will provide an outline of what biblicalhumanities.org is doing, demonstrate some initial resources being developed, and explore as-yet-unanswered questions. Among the questions is what we can do to leverage our work to include the rest of the world, and what the rest of the world can contribute.
Open Content for Biblical Studies
In 1995, the Perseus Project released most of the classical Greek corpus on the Internet, with morphology, grammars, and high quality lexicons, using open formats, and they freely licensed their TEI texts in 2006. Open content has transformed the study of the classics, but there is still no similar open source ecosystem for biblical content. This affects researchers who want to explore biblical materials in new ways not supported by existing software, and affects teachers, pastors, and Bible students who have limited funds. Some resources developed for free distribution cannot be released because of copyright restrictions on underlying texts or morphologies.
The digital resource project at biblicalhumanities.org works to identify important resources, including high quality lexicons, morphologies, grammars, syntax diagrams, and commentaries, with open licenses, in open XML formats, with publicly accessible bug tracking and source code control. We use out-of-copyright texts, and seek to cooperate with seminary and university projects, Bible Societies, translators, and scholars who are producing materials they would like to make freely available.
