SBL Updates Student Rules

This was forwarded on by a graduate student. I am glad that they are reconsidering the matter. Dear Student Member: The Executive Committee of Council met on 12 January 2011 to discuss concerns over the recent policies regarding student participation in the Society’s Annual Meeting. The policies that were announced in November 2010 required all students without a doctoral degree to submit to the Program Unit Chair the full text of the paper they intended […]

How much for that projector?!

So there has been a LOT of discussion about how much the fact that SBL charged for projectors at the conference, some of it very humorous.

As anyone who know us (or have siblings of their own) might guess Steve and I have […]

SBL call for papers – New Rules

The call for the call for papers from SBL yesterday and with it the announcement of new policies. I think they are quite reasonable and should help answer some of the questions and concerns about quality/quantity raised in recent years. This will also mark the first year of the reunification of DDR-BRD AAR-SBL with the welcome news that “the concurrent meetings will encourage the organizations’ members to freely attend each other’s programs and events.” (Emphasis […]
