SBL – Aramaic Studies Session

I hope I am not breaking any rules by releasing this information now, but… Here is the lineup for the Aramaic Studies session for this year’s SBL conference in San Diego. It will be on Monday afternoon, not in the heart of the conference but not on the Sabbath or Sunday either, so hopefully many will be able to attend!

If all speakers are willing, I have permission to record our sessions for distribution as podcasts as well! So although we hope for your physical presence if you just can’t make it be sure to check back here for the podcasts after the conference.
