The #SBLAAR14 App is [Not Really ] Out – An Update…. *curses, foiled again*

leave a comment »

For iPhone and iPad.  Just visit the app store on your device and download and install.  Easy peasey.  [You'll search for sblaaram14].

UPDATE- NO it isn’t…  SBL tweets

test version, no good. Live version out later this week. Test was not supposed to be available.

[Alas, however, it was in fact available... dashed hopes.  Crushed dreams...]

‘Fortress Commentary on the Bible’ Blogger Roundtable at SBL

leave a comment »

Fortress Press is planning to have general editors Hugh Page, Margaret Aymer, Gale Yee, Matthew Coomber, and David Sánchez (5 of the 6 editors of the Fortress Commentary on the Bible), along with Fortress Editors Neil Elliott and Scott Tunseth, at the Fortress suite for an informal blogger roundtable at SBL on Monday (11/24) from 10:00-11:30 am.

Biblical studies bloggers interested in attending should contact Emily Varner directly and right away; the event will likely have a fairly low attendance cap (20 or fewer total participants, perhaps). Emily’s contact contact info is:

Fortress will send bloggers who attend a copy of either the OT or NT volume of this commentary ahead of time, so that participants can review it and form questions for the editors. More info on the newly released Fortress Commentary on the Bible is at the link above and numerous others on that page, such as an interview with the editors, what contributors have to say, and an online sample.

Down in New Orleans: The Sixteenth Century Society Conference

leave a comment »

It’s happening now, and you can follow along with various doings via the twitter hashtag #scsc14.  It ends tomorrow.  You can learn more about the Sixteenth Century Society here.

The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) promotes scholarship on the early modern era, broadly defined (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660). Providing opportunities for intellectual exchange among scholars of the period, the Society also actively encourages the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. The geographical scope of the organization is as international as its membership. The SCSC welcomes scholars from all disciplines in early modern studies including history, art history, religion, history of science, musicology, digital humanities, Ottoman studies, and literary and cultural studies in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The Society holds one annual meeting in a different city each year, usually during the month of October, with an average of more than 700 participants.
