#ICYMI- SECSOR Call For Papers

The deadline is October 5, so it’s needful that we remind Southeastern Region SBL-ers of the call for papers:

Dear Colleague,

The call for papers for the 2016 SECSOR meeting in Atlanta, Georgia is now available.

Come and join us in Atlanta, GA for the Southeastern Commission for the Study of Religion (SECSOR) Regional meeting on March 4–6, 2016!

The following sections and program units invite members/participants who wish to present a paper or coordinate a session to submit the Proposal Submission Form available on the SECSOR website (http://secsor.org) along with proposals to the appropriate section chairs by October 5, 2015. Proposals should consist of a 1-2 page description of the presentation unless otherwise requested in the call for a particular section.

Each member/participant is limited to ONE (1) proposal, although a member may submit the same proposal to multiple sections. If a member submits a proposal to multiple sections, the relevant sections must be ranked as first or second choice on the Proposal Submission Form. Proposals for joint sessions as listed in the call should be sent to all involved section chairs, as directed, but do not have to be ranked.

Please note that, unless otherwise indicated, papers must be of such a length as can be presented within twenty (20) minutes, typically. Planned use of audio-visual equipment must be noted on the submission form. SECSOR will provide only a limited number of AV rooms with screen, cart, and power cords. Presenters must bring their own projection, audio, and other support equipment. It is imperative that we have all information concerning AV equipment on the proposal forms in order to insure presentations have the support needed. It is not possible to accommodate AV needs once meeting room assignments have been determined.

The copying of handouts is the responsibility of the presenter. All program participants must be registered for the meetings.

News For the SBL Southeast Region

The Hyatt Regency Greenville (the venue for the 2013 meeting) is now accepting reservations!  And the room rate is really, really good.  The hotel website specifically set up for members of SECSOR (that’s SBL Southeast, ASOR Southeast, and AAR Southeast) is this one. Ken Hoglund writes

The hotel runs a shuttle to and from the airport, and it sits at the top of Greenville’s “main drag”; lots of restaurants, shops, bars, etc. flow downhill from the Hyatt and it’s all very walkable. This should be a great way for our attendees to discover one of the treasures of the SE in terms of small cities.

I hope to see you there.

The 2012 Southeastern Regional Meeting of the SBL

The 2012 SECSOR Meeting will be at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center, March 2-4, 2012.  The special meeting rate is $89/night.  Reservations should be made directly with the hotel by calling  1-800-228-9290.

You can download the preregistration form here.

The SBL Southeastern region is known as SECSOR, and it’s a joint meeting of AAR, SBL, and ASOR.  It really is the best, the most active, and the most academically gifted region in the SBL.   If you live in the region you should go.  Honest to goodness, all the best people are there.

If you don’t, don’t fret- I’ll be blogging it.
