Jeremy Schipper has sent out the call for papers for the 2011 MAR-SBL. I presented last year for the first time at a regional meeting and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was great to meet up with so many “local” scholars and I hope to go again this year. With all due respect to Larry, I would go just to hear Max, she is dynamite! 😉
The 2011 Mid-Atlantic Regional SBL call for papers is now available on the SBL website. The meeting will be held jointly with the Mid-Atlantic and New England/Maritimes Regions of the American Academy of Religion (AAR) on March 17-18, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The call contains dates, locations, deadlines, guidelines for preparing and submitting proposals, hotel and registration information, and other important details regarding the meeting.
