Just in time for Pessach/Passover, a paper on the Exodus from a cultural/collective memory perspective, has just appeared in a volume edited by Tom Levy et al., the proceedings of a conference on the Exodus which was held in San Diego two years ago.
The paper is entitled:
Maeir, A. M. 2015. Exodus as a Mnemo-Narrative: An Archaeological Perspective. Pp. 409–19 inIsrael’s Exodus in Transdisciplinary Perspective – Text, Archaeology, Culture, and Geoscience, eds. T. E. Levy, T. Schneider and W. H. C. Propp. Quantitative Methods in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Heidelberg: Springer.
Happy Passover/Easter for those of you who are celebrating!
And for those participating in a “Seder” tomorrow night – please feel free to use ideas that are presented in the article! :-)
