Doctoral Network: Old Testament Studies (OTSEM)

Old Testament Studies: Epistemologies and Methods (OTSEM) is a network of Old Testament scholars connected to doctoral programmes in a number of Northern European university institutions.

The objective the network is to improve the environment for Hebrew Bible/Old Testament research, especially doctoral and post doctoral research, by initiating contact and co-operation between members and departments throughout the network. We usually convene once a year at our Annual Meeting, at which younger scholars present their work and receive feedback.

Local contact at Åbo Akademi University: Professor Antti Laato
