We are looking forward to welcoming Professor Konrad Schmid of Zurich to London in March 2023 for two events.
On Wednesday 15 March Konrad Schmid will deliver the annual Ethel M. Wood Lecture, at 5 pm in the Council Room of the King’s Building in the Strand, followed by a drinks reception. He will speak on the theme ‘Thinking about Thinking: Modes and Developments of Second Order Thinking in Ancient Israel’.
On Thursday 16 March the annual KCL/UCL Hebrew Bible workshop will take place. Konrad Schmid will give the keynote lecture, addressing the question ‘How Divine Laws Became Divine: The Case of the Covenant Code (Exodus 20-23)’. The workshop will be in the River Room of the King’s Building in the Strand, from 1.30 pm to 5.30 pm, followed by a drinks reception. Proposals of short papers are invited from PhD students and early career researchers on topics within the general area of ‘The Laws in the Pentateuch’. Short paper proposals should be sent to, by the deadline of Monday 13 February. While the workshop will be an in-person event, with the networking and other benefits this brings, a hybrid option may allow for the possibility of some of the short papers to be presented remotely.
