CFP: Yale graduate conference on "Talmud and Philosophy"

ASSOCIATION FOR THE PHILOSOPHY OF JUDAISM: Graduate conference on “Talmud and Philosophy” (Yale University 30 April 2017).
The study of Talmud, immersion in its distinctive modes and methods, represents a promising arena for deepening philosophical reflection. We invite papers for a day-long conference, to be held on April 30, 2017 at Yale University, that both explore and evaluate the potential for conversation between Talmud and philosophy. We welcome proposals engaging rabbinic literature more broadly; proposals addressing the concerns outlined above in relation to other religious traditions may be considered as well. Limited financial assistance is available for travel and hotel costs. Open to graduate students in all fields.
Follow the link for further particulars and instructions for submitting a paper proposal. HT reader Gerald Rosenberg.
