Rethinking Nancy Jay’s opposition between sacrifice and childbirth in what she defines a “remedy for having been born of woman”, the conference aims to explore new approaches to the maternal sacrifice as a ritual, as a narrative, and as a metaphor. Especially welcomed will be proposals that highlight how it is possible to rethink sacrifice from a maternal perspective, which role can have the maternal thinking in the development, and the uses of sacrifice and its rhetoric. Proposal can refer to any methodology, as well as cultural contexts and historical periods in the context of the Jewish culture.

Paris, October 22-24 2019.
Deadline : March 30
