The 2014 SBL/ASOR meeting was a resounding success. The final Hebrew Bible section featured these three, who all presented excellent and interesting papers.
The final session is today. So- more late tonight or bloggettes along the way. A final assessment tonight. But so far, A+.
The panel discussion on online teaching was really quite good and quite well attended. The ASOR session too was really nicely done. A good afternoon altogether.
So as I have time I’ll post photos and snippets. Stay tuned for your only live coverage on the 2014 meeting of SBL/ASOR Southeastern region on J.I.M.
Otherwise you only get three photos of the evening session before the camera dies. In any event, the papers I heard covered a variety of things (I hopped around). Good stuff. Good first day. Looking forward to tomorrow. Panel discussion on ‘Teaching the Bible Online’ (I’m a panelist) and then Sunday morning the session I chair. The last session. But I can’t accuse Bryan Bibb of chicanery, because he’s presenting in it. Let the tyrannay commence!
Today I’ll be heading to Atlanta for the SBL/ASOR regional meeting. It’s going to be great I’m sure. If the hotel wifi is working I’ll post conference highlights and photos (as is my wanton custom).
I doubt there will be much blogging along the interstate though. It’s unsafe to blog and drive. And for some students, it’s unsafe to blog at all. Especially if they wish to be interesting (because interesting things are always controversial things). But I digress.
I simply make note of this joyful fact so that when you don’t find the usual flurry of brilliance you’re accustomed to finding here, you’ll not think the ‘rapture’ has occurred and you’ve been left behind (but let’s be honest a moment- if there were such a thing as the ‘rapture’ in the dispensationalist sense then 99% of you would be left behind anyway. Especially you Methodists and Anglicans and Episcopalians and Lutherans and Catholics and MOST especially you, Joel Watts).
