Semeia is an experimental journal devoted to the exploration of new and emergent areas and methods of biblical criticism. Studies employing the methods, models, and findings of linguistics, folklore studies, contemporary literary criticism, structuralism, social anthropology, and other such disciplines and approaches, are invited. Although experimental in both form and content, Semeia proposes to publish work that reflects a well defined methodology that is appropriate to the material being interpreted.
Claudia Camp is Professor of Religion at Texas Christian University and was on the steering committee of the Seminar.
Carole Fontaine is Professor of Hebrew Scriptures, Andover Newton Theological School, Newton Centre, Massachusetts.
