This group brings together Hebrew Bible/Old Testament scholars three times per year in a seminar format to discuss the research of local scholars. Each meeting focuses on one paper, which is distributed and read in advance. After discussion, we invite all participants to continue the conversation over a casual meal. This is currently led by J. Blake Couey (Gustavus Adolphus College) and Elaine James (St. Catherine University).

The next colloquium will meet in January 2019 to discuss recent research. We will also plan a colloquium session during the Regional Meeting (April 6, 2019). Please email Blake at his institutional address for further information, to volunteer to present your work, or to be added to the email list.
