Off to the Winter Meeting of the Society for Old Testament Study

31 Dec

SOTS is my favorite conference of all the conferences.  It’s collegial.  Participants are excellently qualified and exceptionally informed.  The meeting venue is always wonderful.  And the papers are always provocative.  Plus, it’s in Britain so it’s always nice to be back there.

This year we meet in Nottingham, so I get to hang out in the best part of the country.  This year also marks the 100th Anniversary of the Society so that makes it special too.

Every member of the society meets certain qualifications, must be sponsored for membership by two full members in good standing, and have expertise in Hebrew, all of which means that it’s a dilettante free zone!!! 

Everyone you can think of who works in Hebrew Bible in the UK is involved.  So it’s just the best.  

I’ll be posting photos and paper summaries throughout, so stay tuned.
